I am translating a .properties file with tag editor of Trados 2007, from English into Turkish, whereas in the preview window, the Turkish characters do not display as if they are.
How can I save the document as unicode?

Thanks already for any support.

Save it in Notepad Nov 24, 2009

Open the properties file in Notepad, click File -> Save As and select Unicode.

Why Unicode? Nov 24, 2009

AFAIR .properties files got to be encoded in their own standard (and that's what happens when you save the translated file from TagEditor).

But it will be a text file then, not a properties file, isn't it?

Not if you select "All Files" in the Save As dialog and then add the .properties extension before saving...

Properties file is a text file Nov 24, 2009

Properties file is a text file with certain structure. Generally it's:
ID=Text

When you save as, just ensure to keep the file extension.
