Hello,

Trados:7
Source: English
Target: Arabic

Problem: After closing a TU (Translation Unit) which its target contains Arabic and English (sometime English words are kept as is), later on, when reusing the same TU I found that Arabic text has been scrambled to something like Chinese whereas English part is ok!

This problem happens only with dual language target segments.

You can see an illustration of the problem through the following link:

I tried "Reorganize" TM. It did not work.

I got partial solution (exporting TM to .txt file) so I can see corrupted TUs properly but this is not a handy solution since I can not reuse the same TUs again within Word file.

I guess it is a matter of format...any suggestion?

Thank you
