I work with Trados 6.5 ( and Office XP and have noticed the following issue.
If I translate a header using Trados in Word, it will not be taken into account when cleaning up. I have to go and do this manually. It's no big deal, but I was wondering if there is a solution to this.

Hi Kristina,
I have the same problem. I don't really understand why the Macro cleans them up, but the Cleanup function misses them...
Anyway, I usually run the Cleanup, then open the Clean file, ctrl + F8, scroll down to tw4winClean.Main and Run that. Cleans up everything including Headers and Footers. Of course you can't update your TM this way, but if it's just for headers/footers that's no big loss.
Would like to know if anyone has worked out how to do this without running the macro though.
Hope that helps.
All the best
