One problem with Studio is this:

Source : 1.1.1
Studio suggests 1/1/1
Very frustrating. Is there a switch to make it understand numbers?

TM settings Feb 17, 2017

As far as I'm aware that depends on the TM-settings. It could be quite complicated to fix and if you receive fully-fledged Trados Studio packages from your client, chances are next to none that there is a solution to this.

I too have problems with numbers Feb 17, 2017

This is one area where Studio still hasn't caught up with the old SDL Trados 2007. Frustrating.

A workaround Feb 17, 2017

I use Regex Match AutoSuggest Provider plug-in to deal with this problem (this plug-in is useful for many other things of course). It is not a perfect solution but at least the correct string of numbers is always just a shortcut away.

Autosubstitution settings Feb 17, 2017

If this is coming from your Autosubstituton settings, you can change that here:

Project Settings - Language Pairs - All Language Pairs - (Your specific Language Pair) - Translation Memory and Automated Translation - Autosubstitution - Dates and Times

And it looks like it may be the short date format that's causing this problem.

As a general note, Studio takes its date and time formats from Windows, so if you don't want to have to change it for every new file, project, package, etc., you can make the change globally in your Windows settings for the specific language giving you trouble.

Disable date recognition Feb 17, 2017

Sorry, forgot to add this to my previous post:

Since your numbers (1.1.1) are obviously not a date but it seems like Studio is recognizing them as one, you can always disable date recognition in your TM settings.
