I was wondering if anyone has faced the same problem I'm facing with my trados.

I've got windows 2007 and trados studio 2009.
While I use tag editor or trados 2007 with a word file, sometimes it happens that I push a key on my keyboard but on my file it appears another character.

For example:

if I push the closed brackets and on my file it appear the =

Is there anyone knowing if it's a compatibility problem or something else?

thanks a lot

One possible reason is that your keyboard might be configured for different languages. (In Win XP, see Control Panel / Regional and Language Options / Languages / Details and Key Settings).

My keyboard is set up to handle either English or Swedish characters. When Swedish, I get exactly what you are getting = instead of )

This is of course not an error, but exactly what I want to happen when I am typing in Swedish. I can switch between English and Swedish keyboard by the combination of keys defined in Key Settings. It may be that you are accidentally pressing the key combination.

The same happens in other languages. It has nothing to do with Trados.
