After having had the usual troublesome workout in translating a text with Trados I am through with the translation - but clean-up, also as most of the time, yielded just a partially clean .bak file and no clean file at all.

And the .bak file that still contains some source and tags is not to be treated in any way - even highlighting for copying does not work.

I have heard that there is a way to reconvert .bak files into normal .doc files but I cannot get hold of it.

How is this to be solved?

note: this is a very basic matter, so I do not consider a need for giving more software information than SDL Trados 2006.

Rename the bak file Oct 28, 2006

Simply rename the .bak file as .doc or open it from inside word.

Hope that helps
Gillian
