Hello,

here's my peculiar problem.
While translating converted PPT files with TagEditor, whenever the workbench finds a 100% match, it will DOUBLE the number of spaces betweeen the words. This happens for every "set/close" OR "translate to fuzzy" command. The result is: repeated or matched segments end up containing lots of useless spaces between every single word. The only solution is to delete them manually or perform repeatedly a search/replace command. Has anyone else been experiencing this problem? Any suggestion/advice would be appreciated!
Thanks in advance

Martina Bellodi

Your Trados-version? Aug 3, 2009

This is a known (not well know, however) problem.
It appeared mostly with older Trados-versions, in my case last time with build 822/826.
In my case a font manager and a corrupt font system was guilty. After having deinstalled the font manager (mind you - that was a fight, because deinstalling Adobe Type Manager under Windows XP is everything but not trivial) I could stop the problem.

Trados 2007 Aug 3, 2009

Sorry, forgot to mention the version!
I have Trados 2007, build 8.3.0.863 and I use Vista + Office 2007.
I might try the font manager uninstall (or at least do some research in that area first).
Thanks for the quick reply!

No experience with Vista + Office 2007 on my side Aug 3, 2009

But certainly a very bad experience with font managers and Trados.
Finally I dropped the use of font managers and now I do not have any problems.
8.3.0.863 ist the most latest Trados version, so you shouldn't have such problems.
