After closing the TU by set/close open /get next in Trados 2007 the Slovak accents change or disappear.

Does anybody have an idea why is this and how can I sort this?

Eg. I type in: Jazdenie na elektrickom skútri môže byť nebezpečné. after closing,
it changes to: Jazdenie na elektrickom skútri môže by nebezpeèné.

Thanks evrybody

It's a well known Trados "feature"...
Google for "Trados change fonts" or "Trados font corruption".
You may find some explanations and workarounds.

Nonetheless, the only sound solution is to throw out Trados considered as Word + Workbench combo.
If you must assure the bilingual DOC/RTF compatibility, you should use an external tool like DVX, memoQ and many other (e.g., for simpler documents Swordfish should do the job).
If you simply want to work in Word, you have e.g. Wordfast Classic or Metatexis.

Hi Kristian, Jun 14, 2010

The font you work in may not support Slovak accents.
Apply a different font. Choose a font that supports Slovak accents (Times New Roman or Arial would be just fine).
Preferably you should change the style font, so that the problem does not recur (NOT the Normal style, though). Save your document first.
HTH,
Sandra
