When I translate a Word file in Studio 2019 and convert it back into Word, there are no spaces between the sentences (same goes for after question and reclamation marks).

What I mean to say is that sentence 2 starts right after the fullstop of sentence 1, and so on. Is there a way to fix this problem?

Add space after sentences in Studio Oct 5, 2020

I don't know why this happens to you, since the space should be added by Studio automatically. You may want to check the settings - perhaps there is a setting regarding not including space after segments.

As an interim solution until someone comes up with a solution for you, I would just add a space at the end of each sentence in Studio. Perhaps not quite what you want, but it makes things easier.

I now place the spaces manually in the translated Word file. So your solution is a kind of 'same same but different'.

You are right, not quite what I want/am looking for, but thank you for your input.

You are quite correct - it's just that I find it easier and faster to enter a space at the end of a sentence during the translation phase (which needs to be done in Dejavu) that doing it as a separate step i Word after the translation is exported. But what works best for one, does not necessarily work as well for someone else.

I am having the same problem and applying a manual workaround is far from optimal Jan 20

I am working on a large project, made out of many files, and applying the spaces manually is taking much longer than forecast. And initially, I thought I had made a mistake in setting up my Trados options, so I went through them for additional hours...

Placeholder string. Feb 5

Assuming your source file is a wordprocessor file, you could use Search and Replace to add a placeholder string at the end of each sentence. For example, search for -period-space or -period-vtab- or whatever the sentences end with and replace that with -period-placeholder string- in the source file. Then replace the placeholder with -space- in the translated file. To speed up the process you could create a script that does that automatically.
