Hello,
recently, I never had this problem before, I tried to clean up the word files done in trados via the Clean Up... option. But during the cleaning process, my cpu usage jumps to 100% and my computer is blocked I have to terminate the process.

What is going on here...

Regards,
Mirza

File type? Nov 26, 2007

I'm afraid not - hence my question about the file type (or the underlying file type if it's a TTX file you're trying to clean).

Please review the information given for new topics:

When asking for help, make sure that you:
- indicate the file format(s) involved
- specify each software package that is relevant to your posting, identifying the version with the *full* version number
- describe the step(s) or process(es) which have triggered the problem.
This will help others to help you.


Regards,
Ralf

1. open trados
2. go to tools
3. select "clean up..."
4. add a word document that was translated using trados

Cleanup macro Nov 26, 2007

Hi Mirza,

this happens quite often with heavy *.doc files containing a lot of formatting and/or screenshots/graphics/images. And, once the process is over - can take aeons, one gets to know that TWB could not clean the file

In these cases I simply use the TW4 cleanup macro from within MSWord - uncleaned file open of course: from MSWord dropdown menu tools - macro, select "tw4winClean.Main" and click on run. Your file will be cleaned in a sec. Should your client need the uncleaned file as well, make sure you save a copy of the uncleaned file in another folder - your TM will not be updated (in case you have manually edited the target without opening/closing/saving the relative segment).
