I've used the clean up tool (Trados Workbench 6.5) on a Word doc which had an intricate (3-level) outline numbering (in this format: 3.2.4).

The "cleaning up" seemed also to clean the numbering altogether...

Am I doing something wrong here?

Thanks in advance, Doron

Check the formatting Jul 31, 2005

Hi Doron,
I've used the clean up tool (Trados Workbench 6.5) on a Word doc which had an intricate (3-level) outline numbering (in this format: 3.2.4).

Has this numbering also been set in the styles used to format the respective paragraphs (or was it applied manually)?

The "cleaning up" seemed also to clean the numbering altogether...

Such behaviour is frequently caused by 'manual' formatting, as opposed to properly setting and applying Word styles.

What you could try is to store a copy of the pre-cleanup file (the .bak document), and to use the cleanup macro (TW4WinClean.Main). As you already ran a cleanup, your TM will have been updated.

Best regards,
Ralf

Dear Ralf,

Many thanks for your prompt reply.

Indeed I have tweaked the numbering manually, in a desparate attempt to make the target Hebrew numbering match the original English style.

Seems I'll have to go through this in the proper Word way (i.e. losing half-a-night sleep). Then I guess I'll try cleaning up again.

What did you mean by "use the cleanup macro (TW4WinClean.Main)"?

Thanks again, Doron

"Forced" cleanup Jul 31, 2005

Hi again,
Indeed I have tweaked the numbering manually, in a desparate attempt to make the target Hebrew numbering match the original English style.

Seems I'll have to go through this in the proper Word way (i.e. losing half-a-night sleep).

Not necessarily - what you'll need to do is to properly define the styles for Heading1/Heading2/Heading3, and apply it to the relevant section headings.

What did you mean by "use the cleanup macro (TW4WinClean.Main)"?

The Trados template includes a macro called tw4winClean.Main, which will remove source text from your document (=clean it up). The difference between the macro and the Cleanup task is that (i) no backup file will be created; and (ii) your TM will not be updated with any subsequent changes made during editing. Therefore, the macro should be used with care, but can be extremely handy if there is a problem cleaning up.

Best regards,
Ralf
