Has anyone found a workaround for this problem?

I've noticed that putting several spaces in front of the desired description seems to fix it (the word is sightly off-centre in normal HUD but it doesn't look bad).

It works with the txt file but there is no way of sending a string like this through STS (  doesn't get converted to spaces).

Any ideas?

Try using non-breaking spaces. Sometimes it works in cases where normal space cannot be placed.

Is there some other code for those than   ?
Because this one does not become a space when placed in this particular string.

Or is it an issue with several of those in a row? (I tried with 4)

ALT+0160 does it for me.

As an alternative way you can use simple and convenient typography keyboard layout (http://ilyabirman.ru/english/typography-layout/) by Ilya Birman.

All moderators of Russian section use it because of the real en dash (there is only one dash in Russian en dash, while English uses em dash as well) and Russian quotes.

The key for non-breaking space is Right Alt + Space.

Damn. Why didn't I think about it right away.
The regular non-breaking space does register in the strings.
Thanks a lot.
