Dear all,

Does anyone have an idea what I can do to have German quotation marks in the target segments? I chose German (Germany) as target language, but nevertheless the English ones are displayed...

ALT 0132 / ALT 0147 Jul 28, 2009

Hi Alexandra,

I have no idea if that works in Studio 2009 too, but whenever I need German quotation marks in my translations I use the ALT 0132 / ALT 0147 key combination. Works fine in SDL Trados 2007 TagEditor and Word as well.

Just a guess...
Hope it helps.

Select the part of the text Jul 28, 2009

which shall appear within the quotation marks and use the QuickInsert tool bar to insert the German marks. In many formats they are already predefined there. Otherwise you can customize the QuickInsert tool bar to your need for each format.
To do so, go to Extras - Optionen (in German GUI of Studio) and there chose Dateitypen, select the format you wanna modify, click the plus sign beside it, click QuickInsert and add the setting you wanna have.
