Hi there,

When Auto Propagate is active, it does not work well in Arabic in some situations. For example, I have a document that has segments like this:

2 years
5 years
13 years


In Arabic, when we translate 5 years we say 5 أعوام
and when we translate 13 years, we say 13 عاماً

But the Auto propagate does not understand the difference and changes the segments. Is there a smart way to teach Auto propagate to skip those instances? Just wondering.

Thanks a lot.
