In English there is customarily no space between the measure and the measure unit, for instance 6mm.

In Norwegian there should be a space: 6 mm

But even though 6mm=> 6 mm is marked as 100% match in the TM, Studio changes autopropagation to
6mm => 6mm
which is wrong for Norwegian (and for other languages)

Currently Studio has set up globally that target measurements should be equal to source, even if the segment that is propagated is not. I have found where to change this on project basis, but I don't find anywhere to make a global setting.

Anyone who can help?

Hi Roy,

Would this be what you're looking for?

Options - Language Pairs - (Specific Language Pair) - Translation Memory and Automated Translation - Autosubstitution - Measurements - Always insert a normal/non-breaking space between the number and the unit

Of course this won't have any effect on existing projects, for each of which the setting would need to be changed via Project Settings.

Language pairs were missing Dec 2, 2015

Thanks, your suggestion helped, and I can see why I could not find the option.

In my copy of Studio only "All Languae pairs" were present, but I discovered that it was possible to add my specific language pairs. Strange that they are not present by default, since I can only add 5 languages at installation time.
