I'm using track changes function while editing the text (MS Office 2003). Translation is in TRADOS.

I usually select the word or phrase that I wish to replace and just type new words. Recently I have noticed that in addition to new words that I type Word inserts part of the phrase that I condisered as removed (usually one last word).

Did anybody face this problem and how did you deal with it?

Does anybody know how to switch off such autoreplacement?

Hi Marina Nov 16, 2008

I haven't noticed anything like this, however, my suggestion would be going to Tools > Options and unchecking all options with the word "intelligent". I always do this first thing after installing or re-installing Office at all my computers. Many of these "intelligent" options are too intelligent , so I prefer deciding myself and not letting Word to decide for me what to do.
