When I export my TRADOS ttx files to clean rtf, some non-English strings (Hebrew) appear as corrupt characters. Those characters also appear corrupt on Translator's Workbench, but not on TagEditor.
What could be the reason?
I tried the solution proposed here:

And changed all "238" fonts (which is the font in which the corrupt characters appeared, i.e. äéëď ěîöĺŕ ŕú) to "177" (that is, Hebrew). But after creating a new TM and then importing the changed exported TM, it reassigns "238" to all those fonts.
