Hi everyone.
I just installed wordfast version 5.53q and I see it's a really good tool for translators. However I have a problem. On the one hand, If I want to translate from Spanish or English to Chinese the results are very good (It translates the text from Spanish to Chinese very accurately), on the other, if I want to translate from Chinese to English, Spanish or Japanese the only thing I get is many "???????????????????????????????" symbols. What should I do? Is not possible to use the ZH-CN to ES-ES / ZH-CN to EN-US TM's in Wordfast? I tried to create my own glossary, but I still get that problem, I don't know if it's a problem of unicode... If anyone can help me, I'll be very thankful.

Thanks for reading,

Miguel

If ES/EN -> ZH works fine it means your ZH TM is fine (ie Unicode). When you work ZH -> ES/EN and use the same TM, you first need to reverse Source and Target of the TM (Setup Wordfast -> General -> Reverse All)

A glossary is a separate file from a TM. Make sure your ZH or JP glossary is saved in Unicode.
