How can I make my SDL Trados Studio 2011 automatically convert numbers like 1,000,000 into 1 000 000 or at least 1000000?

numbers and dates Mar 9

I have Studio 2014 Professional. I looked and didn´t find an answer to your question. But there's another issue that I have that is similar, with dates.

I have saved all the names of the months in my termbase, but they don't show up in the Autosuggest when they are included in dates. So I have to type them anyway. If the segment populates, it includes the day of the week, too, even though it is not in the source. So I also have to delete the names of the days, too, in my target segments.

Does anyone know how to set up these things in Trados? Or are they just features that Trados doesn't allow us to adjust?

Maybe someone from SDL can answer, if no user has answers.

should be solved easily with RegExp

As workaround, you could copy numbers/dates unchanged from the source to target, and then run a regex to convert them into the correct format. This can be useful when you have many fields to be converted to avoid manual editing (and possible typos)
