Dear colleagues,

As I don't use a Turkish keyboard, I use shortcuts when translating towards this language(alt+i for the i without the dot, etc). However, Trados simply ignores my shortcuts. Would anyone happen to know how to insert Turkish (special) characters? I saw that some people advise using QuickInsert, but I can't find this option anywhere.

Thank you very much.

Best regards,

Trados 2007 or Studio 2009 Jan 7, 2013

Hi Basak,

If you mean Studio 2009, the procedure is quite simple:

Editor -> View -> Toolbars -> check QuickInsert.

Project Settings, select Files Types, and the File type you're currently translating, e.g. Word 2000-2003.

Expand -> click on + sign - QuickInsert is the 1st entry listed, in the RH pane click Add and enter the characters you need, also check the Display on Toolbar box.

If you mean 2007, I won't be of any help as I consider it as obsolete and refuse to use it any longer.

Adding a Turkish keyboard under Windows x, might be the easiest solution. You should be able to toggle between one or more keyboards quite easily (Alt+Shift). I've used up to 3 different keyboard on my French system.
