I always briefly get rid of this issue by selecting all in Editor and paste in MS Word + hidden text display to see double byte spaces. It is quick.
For short statements, use "double-byte" space search and replace to quickly mend it.

Along the line already suggested: if your source file is a Word document, I would use "Save Target As..." instead of copying and pasting from Trados Studio, just to make sure nothing is missed.
In Word(2000/2003/2007), you can easily create a macro to do this:
.Text = " " ' <== Double-byte space here
.Replacement.Text = " " ' <== Single-byte space here
.Forward = True
.Wrap = wdFindContinue
.Format = True
.MatchCase = False
.MatchWholeWord = False
.MatchByte = False
.MatchAllWordForms = False
.MatchSoundsLike = False
.MatchFuzzy = False
.MatchWildcards = True
Ideally you would create a [Standard module] using the VBEditor with your Normal.dot and paste the code into it, but you can also just paste the above code in the [ThisDocument] section of the VBEditor (Alt+F11) in any document, and run the macro "FindReplaceDBSpaces" from the Macros dialog box (Alt+F8). (Always work on a copy of the .doc so you don't risk losing any work!!!)
If you decide to try the above Word macro, let me know if you have any problems.
