Handling of Wingdings as Unicode

Would it be possible to handle Wingdings in CafeTran Espresso as Unicode characters?


This would improve the quality of Memories, the readability in the translations editors  and reduce the number of tags and labour to insert them.


Let me give you an example. Here is a DOCX with an arrow from the Wingdings set:

In CafeTran Espresso:

In XLIFF:

And here is a transformation table:

You will find the arrow here:

I see three possibilities:

  1. Replace the Wingdings with Unicode during import, for good
  2. Replace the Wingdings with Unicode during import, only for the translation phase
  3. Replace the Wingdings with Unicode during export, not very useful here 
Which Wingdings?
  • The arrows
  • The bullets
