Hi all,

I need to deliver 2 Word documents within the next few hours.
I don't have Trados installed in the pc I'm currently using, and I need to clean the files Can anybody help me?

This is a horrible and embarrasing situation!

Thank you in advance...

Hello Yaiza,
Just search for Hidden text and replace with nothing.

Best regards,
Cecilia

PS. You should also go in to Format>Styles in Word and delete the Trados styles. DS.

Search and replace all Sep 14, 2007

Hi again,
Could you not have used search and replace all and done it in one go? That should work unless there is other hidden text than the Trados text in the files.

Best regards,
Cecilia
