Hi,

I have the Microsoft glossaries (English > French) in the CSV format. In order to be able to import them in a TM, I used a utility that converted the CSV file in a very nice *.txt file. Everything looks fine from that point.
I created a memory and imported the *.txt file in Translator Workbench.
When I look in the TM (using the Concordance tool), all the diacritic signs are transformed into weird signs.
Am I missing something?
Is there any workaround to display the French properly?
Thanks!

Caroline

Take the txt file and open it with Editor (text editor Windows) and "save as"
-the same name,
-as txt
-change the code to utf-8

after that import it to your TM

Not each process can work with unicode, for french you do not need unicode, utf-8 is enough. It takes just a few seconds to try.

I solved my problem! Oct 24, 2005

Hi,

Actually, the files were already in utf-8, which was the source of the problem.
I saved them as Ansi files and could import them without any problems in the WB.

Thanks for your help!

Cheers

Caroline
