I was wondering if anybody could please help me.
I've finished translating a Word document using the software of the topic subject.
When I try to clean-up the file, the workbench windows says it is 100% cleaned and then freezes.
The .bak copy of the file appears in my folder, but the cleaned up file is nowhere to be seen.
Sorry if this is a basic question, I'm new using Trados and this is really frustrating.
Can anybody help this desperate translator?

try to clean using a macro named tw4winClean.Main in Word Jun 26, 2005

Before doing that, save your file in another name for backup purpose (also for updating your TM, perhaps).

You may find that macro (tw4winClean.Main) in Word menu: "Tool - Macro - Macro" and then run it. It will give you a clean copy of your translation, but your translation memory won't get updated.

Hope this helps.

Don't forget to clean up any header/footer and text box separately Jun 26, 2005

when using this macro, as it does not do that automatically.
But these are the only limitations (including the above mentioned lack of TM upgrade) of this macro. It causes no problems.

Regards
Jerzy
