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 thisicon_frown.gif

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 helpicon_smile.gif
