Hello All,

Sometimes, when I import trados TMs into SDLX with TM Maintain, accented letters get corrupted.

For example the word:

verrà

gets imported as:

verrÃ

How can I solve this problem?

Thanks in advance

TM Maintain import menu has encoding to select. I always use Unicode-8 for a safe method (in particular, for Asian languages --- it depends on Trados TM encoding you will import). If this fail, I open SDL Maintain and "Find & Replace All" characters in question.
