We need more information on the origin of the Word files Mar 15, 2015

What is the origin of the uncleaned Word files? Are they for instance an External View from Trados or Studio, or perhaps MemoQ? Or is it an uncleaned Trados Workbench file?

If it's an External View file, it should be in a table format with 3 or more columns. In that case you might be able to copy the table over to an Excel file and import it into your TM.

Depending on the format there may be simpler ways to do it, though.
