Probleme beim Übersetzen in eine andere Sprache als die der Word-Version.
I use German Windows XP Pro and German Word for Windows 2002. I get a German file marked as German language from a client. The inverted commas are German
How do I get English inverted commas? I can get them if I change them one by one, but not with search and replace.
One thing I might try: first, automatically change all inverted commas to non-typographical:
Mark the text as English language. Then set the AutoFormat options to change non-typographical inverted commas to typographical inverted commas, and to do it on the fly.
Then automatically, with search and replace, replace ” with “.
This only works in the English version of Word. In the German version, although the language has been set to English and the inverted commas stripped of their typographical quality, it seems they still remember what they once were.
I can confirm this because I tried it on an English version of Word and Windows and it worked. And a German colleague in Britain has the problem in reverse.
Someone else said there are differences in Word between the American, British and Australian versions going beyond what you would expect.
