I would like to change the way date is s automatically adapted to target language.

Example> SDL automatically translate date to 4. marec 2017. However, because of the specific nature of my texts, I always need 4. marca 2017.

Do I have to change that manually every time or there is an automated way to do that. I don’t find an option to change that in Auto–substitution settings?

(I tried to copy paste a screen shot in this poste, but I don’t manage to do it. Does copy-paste normally work on this forum?)

I really appreciate any help you can provide.

The choices for data format are TM-specific and language pair-specific. If you've got a project open, change the project settings and if not, use general options.
In both cases go to language pairs>specific language pair>TM>Auto-substitution>dates and times.

This may not help you if you need a different spelling for months and it's not offered in the above setting. Maybe you could set up a new TM with a different language variant?

(To upload screenshots, drag them into the box called "upload images". You can't simply copy and paste images.)

Emma, thank you for your answer. Mar 6, 2017

I just need a different spelling of a month (numbers are ok) and so far I didn’t find any solution for this. (If I choose a different language variant, spelling will still not be the way I wish).

(About copy paste > I don’t see any I box called "upload images". I have just two boxes. First is „Title of your reply“ and second is „Topic body“. If I try to paste a screenshot of any of those, it doesn't work)
