I make a TM for English>Bosniac pair. When I open a DOC file in Word, open a TU, enter translation and add it to the TM the TU closes and shows the text in wrong coding.

Namely, my system uses Cyrillic code page (Windows XP + Serbian Cyrillic LIP = Windows 1251). Bosniac (but Serbian Latin also, have tried) uses Windows 1250. When I close a TU its content should be in Latin, but the specific CP1250 characters (such as š, đ, ч...) are shown as translated from CP1251 (љ, р, и...)

This was not an issue earlier.

Anyone understands the problem and has a solution?
