Hello!

Can anybody tell me why the font changes from Arial to Times New Roman when I open a segment in Trados 2007? What is wrong with it? How can I change that? The source text is Arial and should be the same in the target.

Many thanks

Cinzia

TagEditor or SDLX May 6, 2012

I met with this issue for a long time when I applied Trados 2007 template+MS Word. I tried with a number of suggestions in Trados Knowledge without success. I end up with use of TagEditor or SDLX for all my jobs.

Thank you ... May 6, 2012

... but I feel frustrated at this point. Also, when I confirm a segment, and open the next one, the page goes all the way up to the top of the screen and I cannot she the source segment because it remains in the previous page. That means that I have to scroll up each time to see the source segment in blue. Has it hapenned you,too?

Give up using Workbench May 6, 2012

The problems you describe are typical bugs of Trados 2007 when you use the Workbench application in Word. As Soonthon advises, switch to Tag Editor (part of Trados 2007) or better still, upgrade to Studio.

Font changes, messed bullet points, problems with tables and a cursor that jumps up to the top of the page are all part and parcel of Workbench. As I recall, switching to "draft" view or "print layout" in Word may help to fix the cursor focus.

The difference between a CAT tool and a Ferrari car May 6, 2012

Thank you, Emma. I have tried changing the view to Normal and it seems to be working better now. Nevertheless, the problem of the font change persists.

Considering how much CAT software costs, it should run as fast and smooth as a Ferrari, but it doesn't!
