When entering a non-breaking space (A0) into a translation in the CurseForge localization tool, it's converted into a regular space (20).
1. For any phrase and any language, type some words and somewhere in there, use Alt+0160 to insert a non-breaking space.
2. Export that translation.
3. In a binary/hex editor, inspect the word you changed.
The non-breaking space (A0) has been converted into a regular space (20).
The character should stay as I typed it.
Insert the non-breaking space using a text editor on your own machine and then manually import your changes using the localization tool's Import tab. This preserves the correct formatting.
* Non-breaking spaces are useful for French, which uses a space on the left and right of a colon, like this: "Equip : Do something." The left space should be a non-breaking space to prevent the situation where Equip and the colon end up on different lines.
* This breaks functionality for add-ons that depend on perfectly accurate translations of text to function properly, such as Pawn.
* I reproduced this today using Firefox 18 on Windows 8 x64.
