Remove superfluous embedded codes (rogue codes) from Word files with CodeZapper (part of DVX2)



What is “CodeZapper”?

"CodeZapper" is a set of Word VBA macros designed to “clean up” Word files before being imported into a standalone translation environment (DVX, memoQ, SDL Studio, TagEditor, Swordfish, OmegaT, Wordfast Pro, etc.).
Word documents are often strewn with “rogue codes” or junk tags (so-called “smart tags”, language tags, track changes tags, spellchecker tags, soft hyphenations, scaling and spacing changes, redundant bookmarks, etc.).
This tagged information shows up in the translation grid as spurious codes{1}around{2}, or even in the mid{3}dle of, words, making sentences difficult to read and translate and generally negating many of the productivity benefits of the program.
