Can someone please explain how to set the Trados Studio 2011 so that the program does not auto-propagate back and deletes those spaces between the number and the unit, when the source text DOES NOT have a space between the number and the unit.
Like in this sentence: "Use 20g grease."
And, when I put a space between the number and the unit it states that there is an ADDITIONAL NUMBER !!!????

SECOND: As I have a German source text I have also problems with the Thousand units point.
The German number within a text is e.g. 1.000, and after the translation it does not delete the point in auto-propagation, when I translate the number in the sentence without the point. The numbers in Slovene from 1000 up to 9999 are written without a point.

... is to use TermInjector (OpenExchange).


1) Create a regular expression rule file (UTF-8) for your replacement rule file

Enter the following replacement rule:

([0-9]+)([a-z]+) -> (equals tab in TermInjector) \1 \2

Same with 1.000 =

([0-9]+).([0-9]+) -> (equals tab in TermInjector) \1\2

Sorry, forgot to mention that you need to enter a TM In TermInjector

Drop me an e-mail if you're stuck.

Cheers,

Bernard
