Better handling of numbers (with (narrow) non-breaking spaces) for propagation and QA


I always have the problem that Trados Studio does not correctly propagate numbers and units if you enter them with (in my case) a narrow non-breaking space. So I end up having to edit and confirm each segment manually where it could be done with a propagation batch:

example: (source has normal spaces, my target always has narrow non-breaking space)

7 min (for minutes)  > 7 min

next segment:

4 min > 7 min (TM match inserted by Trados )

Apparently Studio does not get that 7 is a number in that case so it does not replace it with the new number. The same goes for QA checks: I get tons of errors about missing or wrong numbers although they are correct.
