Unfortunately, you can't May 15

There is no trailing-space check in Transcheck in WFP3, unfortunately. Transcheck will only detect double spaces, incl. at the segment end, or end punctuation mismatch.

If the trailing/leading-spaces check is very important to you, you can switch to Wordfast Pro 5 – it has this check.

Another solution I can offer, although unnecessarily complicated (because you can use WFP5), is to export your TM into TMX format, then use Heartsome TMX Editor to edit your TM.

Heartsome TMX Editor is free and has a rich and useful set of QA checks and filters for TMs, including leading/trailing spaces checks. What you can do is run this check, remove all leading/trailing spaces you don't want, then import the TM back into WFP3, then (re)translate from the TM.
