1. In your source text use the Find and Replace function to replace all asterisks with any special sign, e.g. ^ or & that are "neutral" to MemoQ (meaning: has no effect on the software operation).
2. Once translated, in your target format (DOC, DOCX, whatever) replace all those special signs with asterisks.
Thanks Andrzej, I assume it's the same thing I'm doing now:
use something like "@@@" and then replace all the occurrences
It's a pity there's no other way, but I'll just have to live with it.
PS. By the way, if you enter a term with two asterisks in a row (like "ex**ample") into the TB, MemoQ proposes to treat the asterisks as literal asterisks, rather than special characters. So I assume there's no technical reason not to allow the same for single asterisks, just a question of usability...
