Hello all,

I have used Winalign to align a group of files (EN>EL).
I need to deliver .txt files, but when I export the project or a pair, in the .txt the greek is unreadable.
Exporting as .tmx works fine.

It should be a problem with Unicode, but I have no idea how to solve it. I have tried the solution proposed here ... See more
Hello all,

I have used Winalign to align a group of files (EN>EL).
I need to deliver .txt files, but when I export the project or a pair, in the .txt the greek is unreadable.
Exporting as .tmx works fine.

It should be a problem with Unicode, but I have no idea how to solve it. I have tried the solution proposed here http://www.proz.com/forum/sdl_trados_support/98897-problem_with_turkish_characters_with_winalign.html
but it did not help.

Does anyone have a solution or a work-around?

Thank you!

Why wouldn’t you first export to TMX, then import it into an empty TM using Workbench and then export to txt?

Thank you for the suggestion.

This works better, but causes similar problems.
