This may not be a big problem, but still is annoying. Can Trados (I'm using 2006) automatically reopen files after clean-up operation? I usually split my translations into smaller chunks, translate them using Trados, clean them and then add images etc., for which I have to navigate to them on my drive and manually reopen them in MS Word. It would be really handy to make Trados reopen my files for me after it cleans them.

Don't close the files in Word, use macro for cleaning Aug 8, 2007

Instead of cleaning in Workbench, where you MUST close the files prior to cleanup, because otherwise Windows will block them, as files may be only open in one application at the time, use the cleanup process in Word.
Press ALT+F8, put "tw" in the Macro name line, select tw4clean.main and let it run. Do so for each document and you're done.
Bear in mind, that this process does NOT update your TM, so remember to save uncleaned copies of your files for updating the TM afterwards.
