The program obviously has some other quickinsert button assigned to the letter, so you should try checking Tools -> Options -> keyboard shortcuts -> editor/quickinsert toolbar

The Trados programmers are traditionally unable to handle correctly the keyboard i.e. the Ctr+Alt based shortcuts are interpreted incorrectly as AltGr (right Alt).
In theory, a workaround for this problem was found at the Studio 2009 beta stage, i.e. the letters with diacritics were handled correctly but the corresponding Trados shortcuts became unavailable which was basically better than no diacritics at all...
It seems the Trados guys never learn.
The Windows system keyboard should never be hijacked by a well written program...
BTW, Wordfast Pro has exactly the same Alt+Gr related problem.
