Hi all,

Does anyone know a simple way to set unicode characters automatically in TagEditor and in Word/Trados?

I need to change my apostrophe settings, that is I have to use unicode 2019 instead of unicode 0027.

I tried to search if there was anything about this in the forum, but I could not find anything specific.

Thank you in advance.

Silvia

Sounds like you want a system-level "keyboard remapper".
A search for that term will solve your problem. There are a number of solutions for various platforms.

Do a search-replace before delivery?

You could try autohotkey. I'm fairly sure you could use it to generate Alt-[xxx] when you press the key or keycombo that stands for apostrophe on your keyboard. {ASC xxx} should work.
Yes, it's going to take more than 2 minutes to get AHK installed and set up, but any real solution is. If you want something faster, you'll have to resort to search&replace after you're done or copy-pasting as you go along.
