Strange problem just arised

I'm translating a document using Translator's Workbench and Microsoft Word. Every time I confirm a segment though, the original font (Arial or Courier New) is automatically changed to Times New Roman. I've tried setting Arial as standard but without much luck, and I must say that this is a very annoying problem...

Any ideas?

Strange? Jun 4, 2009

Dear Magnus,

what is strange about your problem is that obviously it hasn't occurred to you earlier. A forum search will reveal that this frequent problem is caused by manual formatting of the source document (instead of using styles).

The solution generally recommended is: Don't use TWB and Word. Use TagEditor instead. This will also solve a lot of other problems, too.

Kind regards,
Erik

Thanks Jun 4, 2009

Thank you Erik

I'm not that big of a TWB with MW user so I just found it a bit strange.

I'll just go with SDLX or Tag Editor instead, like I always do..

Magnus
