Hello,

I'm currently translating some text where the source text is sometimes written in Times New Roman. However when I translate the segment (into the active target line), the font of my input is sometimes Arial. There are no specific formatting tags involved AFAIK. When I export it, it looks OK, but still it would make me feel a bit less ill at ease when it would be in match all the way through...icon_smile.gif

Is that normal?

Thanks,
Tomas

Hi Tomas,
if you are working in TagEditor, this is no problem at all. Formatting is determined by tags, so the font of the target segments is absolutely irrelevant. If you keep all tags in the target, the result should be okay.

Switch "show display formatting" off Jun 14, 2009

Go to "Filter settings" (located in your SDL International program group, subgroup "Filters"), select the tab for the source format you are translating and switch "show display formatting" and "use font mapping" off. In my opinion these should be the default setting, but it seems no one wants to listen to meicon_smile.gif
Here is an example for Word 2000-2003:
