I'm using Trados 2015, and I was given the task to produce my translation (from Russian to English) in such a manner that each source sentence (or paragraph) is followed by the slash symbol and then by the target sentence (or paragraph):

Стандартная операционная процедура/Standard Operating Procedure

I had already translated the entire text in Trados before the customer specified this requirement.
Is there a way to avoid manually copying and pasting bits of text from one Word file to another to create such a translation?
Can this be automated somehow?

Export for bilingual review Oct 6, 2017

This is an option and that is all I would offer a client to provide without additional charge:
http://producthelp.sdl.com/sdl_trados_studio_2015/client_en/edit_view/SendFilesforExternalReview.htm

This provides you with a word file with a bilingual table. If you want, you could edit it to remove some columns (e.g. the match percentage column) or background colors of the cells, to make it a plain table.

Your specific request is not standard, so if that's what they want, I would tell them that there is an additional fee for doing that.

An app Oct 6, 2017

There's an app in the SDL App Store that may help you, as it places the target right below the source for each segment:
