I'm no expert, so bear with me. How do you normally type those numbers (in e.g. MS Word or in a text editor)? Is your question related to typing those numbers inside non-Arabic text, or about typing them in Arabic text?

I don't either know how they are typed in MS Word or editor; I usually use http://www.arabic-keyboard.org/ and then copy/paste... but that was when I had a limited number of them....
now that I am translating a big document (vehicle technical specifications) from German into Arabic with a lot of these numbers, I am trying to figure out how to write them directly using SDL Trados ....without copy and paste number by number which is a very boring and time-consuming process....so it is about typing them in a translation target Arabic text.

You could try using an AutoHotKey script that creates shortcuts, like this:

Alt + 1 = ١
Alt + 2 = ٢
Alt + 3 = ٣
Alt + 4 = ٤
Alt + 5 = ٥
Alt + 6 = ٦
Alt + 7 = ٧
Alt + 8 = ٨
Alt + 9 = ٩
Alt + 0 = ٠

Download something like that here:

(I'm no expert at AutoHotKey, so this is a simple script, but it works for me.)

For Farsi, I have installed a software that automatically changes the numbers when I change the keyboard language into Farsi. There should be a similar software for Arabic too.

The first step is on installation of the software May 27

Hullo Ebrahim,

I'm sorry, I must have been unclear.

When you install Studio, the installation software asks you what languages you wish to work with. I think Studio requires you to select five languages. I assume that you chose Arabic as one of these languages. The selection happens on installation, and is not accessible thereafter in the Studio interface.

I hope that clarifies matters.

With kind regards,

Adam Warren.

If I'm not mistaken, one can change the languages by reinstalling Trados (this doesn't affect one's license).
