TRADOS and Russian
Thread poster: Teresa Filipuzzi
I finally decided to buy Trados (Freelance 6.5). Can any Russian translator confirm me if the basic package enables to work with Russian/cyrillic? Sorry if the question was already posted in the past.

And as Polish uses Unicode, you should be able to work with Russian too (very generally speaking).
However, as allways there are certain limitations. Trados does not do the work on itself, but needs some preparation. Provided you will start with translating Word files (which is the most likely case), you should pay big attention to the formatting of your document, in particular to language and font settings. Should there be a mismatch between the actuall document and the language you translate into (ie. document formatted in English and Russian as target langaue not set in styles and in document), you can run into some issues.

Since the latest update (Build 439) Trados has been the uttermost choice for preparing any file Russian into German.
I cannot report any problem whatsoever. One hint for you to observe: Go to the workbench menu Maintenance and search through your existing translation memory. Make sure, every single segment looks the way you prefer it to be.
