The problem is I have to translate a text with a lot of codes. ı have to keep codes as they are, and only translate the words between them.However, no matter how hard I try, when I add \n and for example a number like %12, the text order goes corrupt.

I can't copypaste anything on the correct order, it just pushes the copypasted word, or number to the wrong place.

I tried to add english as a target language in addition to arabic and it's the same.

I tried to write the text in rtl enabled word file and copy paste on trados, and it's the same.

There are thousands of lines that I must finish, but I am really struggling to translate each one of them. It appears a very ridiculous problem, but it affects all my daily capacity. I omitted the lines so far.

For anyone who might need help with this issue: use the home button then in the formatting section you will see LRM and RLM settings. You can swift between directions this way in the same sentence without any problem.
