This is an AutoCorrect option.

To change the setting, go to Tools->AutoCorrect Options..., tab Localized Options.

To disable the auto-quote feature, uncheck the Single quotes and/or Double quotes box.

Alternatively, if you prefer other replacement characters, click on the buttons showing a single/double quote.
