Dear all,
I am using Wordfast for my translations, but when I translate into Arabic, I have the following problem: everytime Wordfast finds a match, the Arabic sentence appears as a serie of interrogation marks! So I basically get sentences that look like this: "??? ?????? ?? ????? ??????? ???", etc.
Could anyone please tell me how I can configure Wordfast so it could recognize the Arabic matches?
Thanks in advance for your help,
Kind regards,
Fady Abou Nakkoul.
