I'm translating a document with thousands of segments containing numbers in tables.

They are of this format: 1.234,56 or 1.000 or 11,11 and I want them to remain in that format, but Studio is changing them all to 1.234.56 or 1,234.56 or 1,000 or 11.11 !

How can i stop Studio from doing this?
Sometimes i correct it and try Auto-propagate, but afterwards it gets all messed-up again.
I just want it to retain the numbers in their original formatting.

Many thanks for your help,

Studio recognises numbers and localises them if you've got "recognize numbers" ticked.

To change this, go to file>Options>Language pairs>Translation Memory and Automated Translation>[select a TM]>click settings>Fields and Settings.

You'll have to re-create your project for this to take effect.
