Setting quotation marks in Trados Studio

I use Trados Studio 2014. I am no expert but it does what I need it to do. Recently, I started working for a company called Yamagata who are very particular about which type of quotation marks are used in their files. Once you've translated the files, you have to use QAD to check them and the 'wrong' quotation marks are highlighted and have to be corrected before the file is sent back to the agency. They insist on the use of unicode quotation marks 201C (opening) and 201D (closing) in EN files so my question is: how can I set Trados Studio to use these quotation marks as standard so that I can avoid having to change them all within QAD once my files are completed?
Any advice would be appreciated.

Studio 2014 does not have… Jul 5, 2016

…any way to set autoreplacement rules for quotation marks, this feature was introduced only in Studio 2015.

You can use Ilya Birman’s typography layout to type them into your texts manually using AltGr+< and AltGr+>.
