For some reason, Trados is changing all my Word file templates from the client's template to normal.dot during cleanup. I can't seem to find any information on this particular problem.
I'm using Translator's Workbench/SDLX, Version 8.0 Freelance and MS Word 2003 (on XP home).

Any ideas/suggestions would be greatly appreciated,

Patrick

Workaround using manual clean Apr 20, 2010

I've been told about a workaround by 'manually cleaning' the file. It works, so I'm posting it here for posterity. To 'manually clean' a file, open the file in Word, and go to 'tools' then 'macro' -> 'macros'. In the list of macros, select 'tw4winClean.main' and click on 'run'. This cleans the document without altering the template (but it doesn't update the TM -FYI).
