I've searched high and low for a solution that would automatically add a non-breaking space before some punctuation marks in French (: ; ! ? etc), and automatically use French guillemets, like Word does.

Wordfast does both of these automatically, so it's annoying that I've spent so long on this

I've been googling it forever, and unbelievably, I can only find this issue brought up 3 times -- none of which received any satisfactory answer. I don't want to search and replace after I'm done with the file, and I don't want to have to use AutoHotKey!

I'm using SDL Trados Studio 2017 SR1 14.1.xxxxxxxx

Thanks for any help
