Dear Colleagues

I have been using SDL Trados. I want to know whether SDL is supporting Bamini Font (Non unicode Tamil Font)? If so, Please advice me how to change settings.

Studio handles formatting and fonts in a transparent way Jun 23, 2016

Did you try to open the document in Studio? Can you see the text properly? If yes, then you should also be able to translate the source to target.

Studio simply transfers the font information from source to target without changing anything,

However, the fact that it is not a Unicode font may create problems. I still suggest that - as a first step - you simply try to see what happens, we can still follow-up on this if it does not work.

Dear Walter

Thanks for the reply. Bamini is a non unicode font. I am trying to solve this problem for a long time. I thing SDL Editor display font should be changed. I don't know how to do it. I you need I can send the font. I really appreciate you for allocating your valuable time for this.

Thank you very much

Dear Thomas

I have downloaded trial version. I like to purchase SDL Trados if this problem is solved.

The font is correctly shown in the preview. Only think I want is Editor display font to Bamini. If you need font I can send.

Dear Anas
thank you for your reply.
I understand Bamini to be a dialect of the TAMIL language (which is supported as a UNICODE language)
We also have resellers in your Region you may want to get in touch with http://www.sdl.com/partners/language-solutions//list/partner-type/language-technology,reseller/Location/South%20Asia
Kind Regards
