I asked a question on the Wordfast group at Yahoo today, and was given the soloution to my questions regardin how to delete the text in the target segment after typing in your translation:

Sub DeleteToEndOfSegment()
'
' Macro recorded by Christine Alba
'
Selection.MoveEndUntil Chr(13): Selection.Delete
End Sub

This macro saves me for a lot of time since I, amongs many others, use to copy source when no match in Wordfast, and a lot of text needs to be deleted for each segment. Add this simple macro in Word, and asign a shortcut to it. I suppose this will work in Trados as well.
