Hello everybody,

I received a Trados-translated, "cleaned" document that still contains yellow boxes and the translator doesn't know how to get rid of them...

The thing is, I don't have Trados where I am now and just want to delete the yellow boxes without messing up the index and numbering. Now that I try to delete them, nothig happens.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Katja

Thanks for your help, but after downloading the Remover and trying to clean up the RTF-file I'm slowly becoming desperate, I need to send it to my client "now" and the translator's left it all tagged!!!

Anybody willing to try cleaning it up for a payment??

Hi Katja,

Send the file to rmraya@maxprograms.com and I'll try to clean it with Trados 7. No need to pay anything.

Is it done? Oct 19, 2005

I have some time to spare an I think I can do it if still needed.

Send it to rzawadzk@poczta.onet.pl

If it proves to be easy I also do not want money. Otherwise, I'll let you know.

Hi,

The original file was damaged (broken tags) and Trados 7 was unable to clean it. However, RTFCleaner removed all Trados tags and hidden text without problems in 15 minutes.

Regards,
Rodolfo
