I translated a document in WordFast Pro but later on discovered that I cannot clean it - there does not seem to be any functis available for it. I found a short key for quick clean but even that does not work in my coputer. Any comments? How does one normally clean document sin WordFast Pro?

Wordfast Pro has no cleanup function because it handles files another way. Use File → Save Translated File menu after you’ve finished.

In fact, there is a cleanup function in Pro, but it doesn't do exactly the same thing as in Classic: it's found in the PM perspective (third tab) and its purpose is to update TM's from translated TXML's. In Classic, the cleanup function can do two things at once: 1) produce the translated version from the bilingual ("uncleaned") DOC, 2) update the TM. In Pro, cleanup only does 2), and you have to use File > Save translated file for 1), as already mentioned.
