Hello everybody,

I'm surprised that I can't find the answer in the existing threads or elswhere on the Internet. Am I the only one to experience that? Here's the problem:

Anytime I have a date in my source text (such as 29. April 2013 in German, for instance), Studio automatically adapts the target text with the French format including the weekday, so "lundi 29 avril 2013" (instead of just "29 avril 2013").

I've never done anything about that and I can't find where to change it. I do know where the date format option is, but it does not offer any mean to opt out the weekday, just the classical dd mm yyyy formats and so on.

Anyone got a clue?

Hi Sophie,

Project Settings -> Language pairs -> Auto-substitution -> Date and Times -> Long date is the default Setting -> change to Last entry in the drop-down list.

HTH,

Bernard

Try this Apr 29, 2013

Go to Control Panel/Regional and Language Options(French)/Format/Customize Format/Date and choose another option.

Thank you!!! Apr 29, 2013

Bernard, that's where I looked in the first place, but I already had the last option

István, you got it, your solution works! Wow, I'd never come to the idea that this is dependent on Windows and not Trados itself!

Many thanks to both of you!

Thanks, István! Same problem in Studio 2014 Jan 29, 2015

It may be useful to add that this has to be repeated for each language variant you work in. The Trados date format (non-intuitive) procedure does not override the Windows setting for that language variant.
