Cleaning within Word Jul 7, 2002


this error can possibly be caused due to embeded graphics in Word file, or for obvious reasons Trados is not able to establish proper communication with word, or your systems is lack of memory.

Nevertheless you can try to clean the file within Word. What you must know is, that cleaning in Word means, no changes in translated units, made after translating and without proper opening the translation units (means entering text in Word in a translated unit without pressing ALT+HOME and then entering changes and proper closing oft this unit). In case of doubt please refer to TRADOS help files.

But in this case I aussume, all translation units are proper stored in your translation memory, and the only thing you need now is to clean up the file.

Press ALT+F8 (or go to Extras, Macro, Macros). Search the list of macros for a macro named \"tw4winClean.Main\", select it and execute it. Afterwards your file is cleaned. It is really as easy as that.

If you need any further informations please contact me via my ProZ profile.
