How to control space insertion during cleanup (Trados Studio 2011)

Trados Studio 2011

When translating from Japanese to English, Trados inserts a space between segments when a file is cleaned up. This is behavior is okay when the segments are separated by a period but not okay when the segments are separated by a colon because the source file usually already contains a space after the colon. You end up having two spaces after the colon after cleaning up. Is there a way to prevent Trados from inserting a space between segments depending on the delimiter (ending punctuation)?

This is what I want Trados to do during cleanup:

If the target segment ends with a period, insert a space.
If the target segment ends with a colon, don't insert a space.

Thank you in advance.

There is no way to control space insertion during cleanup Jan 9, 2014

This is a self reply, just for those who are interested.

I contacted SDL support in Japan, and they have told me there is no way to set the number of spaces that are inserted during cleanup.

This is a feature enhancement I definitely like to see in the future.

It should not be too difficult to add such an option for each rule set in Language Resources > Segmentation Rules of each translation memory.
