Trados error at clean up: Word could not convert the document due to an OLE/COM or file name error

You try to clean up your document with Trados and you get this.

Solutions:

1. Save word doc as rtf and try again.
2. Clean up with Wordfast. It worked in all cases I had this problem.
3. Change the file name to something simple, with latin characters and no spaces or other symbols.

Another reason you fail to clean up is because you have not closed the document you are cleaning up.
