How do I get Western character coding in Studio 2014 when the source document is set to Chinese?

Sometimes there are no problems with the character coding when I receive source documents from this customer for translation, sometimes there are.

What happens is that for characters like quotation marks, there are several blank spaces inserted before or after when Chinese character coding is applied. This happens inside the Studio translation environment. So I would like to change this, because often there are many quotation marks in the source document that I need to enter also in my translations. Is there any way to do this in Options in Studio?

Or should I just change in the source document first? However, I'm not sure how it would affect the other text and the layout in the document.
