I am doing a translation with Trados, whose font is "MetaPlusMedium-Roman".

Sometimes, when I open a new segment, the font is automatically changed to Times New Roman.

As I don't have the source font, I can't change it without making a download in the internet of that font.

Why is this happening? Is there a way of preventing it?

Thank you in advance,

Hi Ivana,
Looks like Windows (or more specifically: Word) is using Times New Roman as a default font for the unavailable font.

As regards general font issues, search for "font change" in this forum.

Best regards,
