Hi everyone,

When I attempt to clean up a document the following error message appears in the bottom menu bar: parameter setting is incorrect. Does anybody know what to do?
Thank you so much....

I have to deliver the translation to my customer and he wants it cleaned up...

Thank you very much.

Try this Dec 15, 2006

If you have Word 2003, try Tools-Macro-Macros-TemplateProject.tw4winClean.Main. (All done in Word, Trados doesn't need to be opened for this to work).

It usually cleans up all OK, overriding all possible errors.

But be sure before to make a backup copy, otherwise you'll loose the unclean file.

HTH,

Uldis

finally a clean solution for Trados 6.5 that works! Jun 8, 2007

Uldis, you are a lifesaver. After struggling to use TW's clean-up program with large Word files containing TOC and tons of images (and failing every time), using that little macro cleaned the file effortlessly in 2 seconds.

For all: Uldis' solution also works in Word 2002, although the macro path/name is slightly different.

Best regards,

PS: I don't know what I would do out here in the Rocky Moutain wilderness without my PROZ colleagues...

Solution Aug 28, 2009

I found this in the Trados TW list:

In Word 2007 under Vista: Go to the "View" tab (or
"Developer" if you have
activated it), click on the far right "Macros" button, select the
macro
from the list and click "Run".

In prior versions of Word and Windows go to "Tools" -
"Macro" - "Macros",
select the macro and click "Run".

All this of cours while you have the offending document open.


Works like a charm.

Nancy
