It is an English - Korean job. Use Trados 2007. Original data is in dita format.
When I pre-translated the file, the space display is correct. Only one space between characters in target segment.
But when translator finished the translation, all the single spaces in locked segments became double spaces...
It's weird. Locked segments are supposed to remain unchanged. And it is impossible for translator to make such modification because it doesn't make sense. Not to mention there're 78 files in total...

Does anybody have a clue of this strange problem?
Looking forward to your help.
Thank you!
