What would be a method to clean up a bilingual Word file so that only the SOURCE text remains?
The reason is that the source phrases have been edited while translating with Wordfast (e.g., removing typos and other mess).

Unless I'm mistaken, the latest version of WF's user manual has a method described in it.

And specifically...? Jan 31, 2008

Could you please quote from the manual?

The same question was raised also in the recent neighbouring thread "topic/91622", "Retrieve edited source text". The answer there mentioned some string of characters to be used with the 'replace' function but didn't say what it was exactly.

Thanks in advance.
