Description: 
CodeZapper is a collection of Word VBA macros to clean Word files before being imported into CAT software like SDL Studio. Word documents are often inflicted with unnecessary and even harmful codes or redundant tags (e.g. language tags, track changes tags, spellchecker tags, soft hyphens, scaling and spacing changes, redundant bookmarks etc.)
Comment: 
All these codes and tags may impair translation texts and as a consequence also translation memories. Text gained by OCR or by a converted PDF file may be even worse. CodeZapper can remove unnecessary tags while retaining formatting and layout. It can be run as a macro (for a single file) or as batch (for several files). No installation is required. The dot file containing the macros is to be copied to MS Word's startup folder. CodeZapper is useful for LSPs when introducing a XLIFF-based CAT systems.
