Trados and InDesign - Font problems

I am using InDesign 3.0 and Trados LSP 7.0 for English to Polish.
The client submits Original files in Indesign 3.0.

Here is the back ground:
The client uses a True Type font (Univers CE 45). When we extract the TT font and run it through Trados, it is converted to a unicode font. When the translation is done, and we reimport the translation to InDesign, the application does not display certain characters. This is because the application is looking for a Unicode character in a TrueType font location. Thus, a little box appears instead of the proper character.

My Question: Does anyone know how to address this problem? One way I thought to address it is to disable the 'conversion' process in Trados that takes a TT font and changes it to a unicode font, but I cannot figure it out.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

David

Could you provide more details on your workflow?

Issue is resolved with new fonts. They submitted Type1 fonts and they seem to work fine.

Thanks,
