I translated a Word 2003 document with Trados 2007 (client's request, I usually work with Trados 2009). When I cleaned the bilingual document with Translators Workbench, question marks appeared instead of accents (the translated document was in Spanish) and other non-alphabetic symbols, and a lot of garbage (with a different font) was introduced in the document. ¿Any suggestions?

Which font is used? Jul 10, 2011

Do you have the proper font installed?
Check also the styles and local formatting in Word.
Finally, do not clean in Workbench, but use TW4winclean.main macro instead, as described here in this forum numerous times.

Problems when cleaning Trados 2007 Jul 10, 2011

Thanks to Jerzy Czopik for his suggestions.

When the problem occurred, both Trados and Wordfast tool bars where simultaneously active. So I went to Tools/ Templates and Complements and unchecked the Wordfast chekbox and cleaned the document again.

This time everyting went fine.
