I work with both Workbench and Studio 2014 and a few days ago Workbench started displaying the source language in both the source field and target field.

However, when I translate, close the string, keep working and then go back to the previous string, the target segment is Danish as it should be.

When I open the [correct] bi-lingual segment, the target field still shows English (source).
When I right-click on the text in the source field (in Workbench) and select Edit Translation Unit, the string is in Danish in the new window that opens up.

So...source text displayed in target field in Workbench, but target text displayed correctly in the translated file and in the Edit Translation Unit window.

I do NOT have 'Copy source on no match' marked
I did not pre-translate the file
And it is happening with all my Workbench TMs, regardless of client, size of TM, etc.

I have not installed SP1 for Studio yet and have not done any other updates since Saturday when this mess started.

Any ideas as to what is going on?
