I don't use a space between numbers and unit such as MB and GB, because of the client's request. So I am translating "8 GB" as "8GB". My TM has these translation. But Studio always tries to insert a space. The TM shows my translation "8GB" but it insert it as "8 GB". I had to delete the space. If I have a table containing "4 GB", "8 GB", "12 GB"..., Studio automatically inserts "4 GB", "8 GB", "12 GB"... even if the TM shows "4GB", "8GB", "12GB"... When I delete the space from "4 GB", "8 GB", "12 GB"... and confirm "4GB", then "8GB", "12GB"... are reverted back to "8 GB", "12 GB"...
Studio is so stubborn. Is there any option controling this behavior?

Hi,

The default uses the same spacing as the source document so this is why you keep getting this. Try the next option, or even set it to always add a space for the Projects you do for this client:


Note that to access this option you will be in the specific language pair, and not All language Pairs.

Regards

Paul
