Hi,

When choosing the "Create Translation" option in SDL Edit's File Menu, the resulting xml file says it has "Windows-1252" encoding, while the original file has "utf-8" encoding.

How can I change this so the translation will match the original?

Thanks!

Nora

check the UTF option when creating the ITD file Feb 5, 2008

When you import the files into a project...you select the source language and the target language and next to that is a little control box for chosing UTF (for the source and the target files). Re-apply your TM and everything should be fine.
