I wonder if there is in Studio 2014 the possibility to rearrange the keyboard. In Word I have defined Cntrl+´(accent) as German ß, but in Studio I have to press alt+225.

Hello Heinrich,

Taken from another thread:

http://www.proz.com/forum/sdl_trados_support/230773-sdl_trados_studio_2011_starter:_apostrophe_style_change_inserting_symbol_using_keyboard_shortcut.html


"What you can do:

1) download and install Autohotkey (http://www.autohotkey.com)
2) Check this page for Alt, Shift, AltGr etc. keys as you will need them: http://www.autohotkey.com/docs/Hotkeys.htm
3) open Notepad or Notepad++ or anything similar
Simply type the key combination you want to use for the special character followed by :: then copy the special character from Word. You can include everything in one document. Every remapping must be in a new line.
4) Save the file as Unicode text with the extension .ahk.
5) Double-click the file to launch the script and start to translate with Trados Studio or any other CAT tool.

My example:
!h::„
!j::”
!i::–
! stands for the AltGr key, h is the h key, :: is the program function and „ is the character required.
In Studio I can use AltGr+h for starting curly brackets, AltGr+j for closing one and AltGr for en dash. Practically that's it. You will have to launch the .ahk file again if you shut down the computer."

So basically you can use this method to define a key combination to enter a specific letter (e.g. AltGr+s for ß)
