Hi,

Is there a way to change those automatic translation rules for numbers in Trados 2011? I figured out, that some rules for Luxembourgish (and in think German too) are wrong:

5% becomes 5% but according to official grammar it should be 5 % with a nonbreaking space in between of the number and the %-sign

How can I tell Trados to translate these the way they should be translated?

Thanks for the help.
Pascal

Hi Pascal,

Go to Tools -> Options -> Language Pairs ->Specific Language Pair (so not All Language Pairs)

Then Translation Memory and Automated Translation -> Autosubstitution -> Measurements

In here you can set custom spaces, or use the options that are most relevant to you:


Regards

Paul

Thanks Paul Oct 24, 2012

that helped. What about numbers? 1.000 vs 1 000

in German they are set to 1.000 in Trados (which is what most people use) but the official recommended standard by Duden and Wahrig is 1 000

Tricky because of the way we autolocalize numbers... Oct 24, 2012

... by using the o/s system settings. I guess you could try the advice in here...

Not ideal, but it might help. The problem of course (assuming it works) is that this will not travel along the supply chain as it will be user specific.

Regards

Paul
