It may be a basic question but as I never really had work with a lot of numbers and tables involved, I never saw this as a real problem. The thing is... how can I configure Trados 2007 to automatically localize number formats? For example now I'm translating from Spanish to English and when using Translator's Workbench inside Word 2003, when I close a text segment and open the next one, if it is a number in a table, Trados just skips all numbers until it finds some text. I have "Numbers" ticked in the setup area involving localizations, so it shouldn't be doing this. Any ideas? (You know, it's really troubling having to change the commas and dots of every number in a large table, for example from 1.500,00 to 1,500.00)
