Déjà Vu ideas

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Show entries from different TMs/TBs in different colours (or adding a letter to the number inside the colour bar).

    It would greatly help to be able to identify immediately where a hit comes from.
    You could do this by using different colours or, IMO better, by adding a letter to the number in the AutoSearch pane.
    For example, match 1A comes from TM A, while match 3B comes from TM B.
    You can still enter match 1 by typing 1 and match 3 by typing 3.

    • Enhance Search-Function with Upwards direction

      Please enhance the Search-function so it is possible to search upwards too. At this moment it is only possible to search downwards. If you want to find something that just is just some segments ago, you need to start searching from top again. Not very productive.

      • Forced auto-propagation to segments marked as Translated, Confirmed or Proofread (up and down)!

        @ https://atrilsolutions.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/requests/4173

        *****************************
        ▶ Michael Joseph Wdowiak Beijer

        Could you please add an optional feature to propagate to confirmed segments?

        An example of why this is needed:

        I am currently translating a text with many repetitions. I previously translated a particular segment as

        ‘First level’ teaching qualifications

        However, I now realise that I would like to change all of them to:

        ‘First level’ teaching qualification

        In memoQ, and many other CAT tools, all I have to do is confirm the segment, and the tool will auto-propagate the translation I just entered to any duplicate segments throughout the rest of the…

        • Improved handling of placeables and numbers

          I'd like it if DVXn could identify "placeables" in ST and automatically insert them in TT. Placeables could be identied from a list, or any word with numbers and text.
          Numbers could also be (optionally) considered as placeables when they don't require format conversions.

          • Autojoin feature

            When joining two incorrectly segmented lines that are duplicates, automatically (but optionally) join other identical pairs of segments.

            • to implement a "Quickplace" function for all kind of numerals

              I suggest to implement a "Quickplace" function for all kind of numerals a segment or phrase may contain (like dates, values etc.). Even Studio has this function, which remarkably would reduce the typing effort.

              • Make Déjà Vu X3 a truly 64-bit application

                All these years we're still dealing with a 32-bit application in 64-bit operating systems, with real and potential problems.

                I suspect this is the culprit behind my Déjà Vu X3 program being unable to process a 65,000-word project consisting of several .js and .xml files, with some .js files reaching 19,000 'words' and crashing the application during pretranslate every single time.

                  • Formatting in TS should reflect formatting in SS automatically.

                    For example, if source is all in bold or italics, this should be set automatically in the target window without my intervention.

                    • Sort hits alphabetically in "AutoSearch - Portions" pane (optional)

                      Would be possible to make it possible to sort the termbase hits alphabetically in the new version?

                      I keep trying to get used to it, but especially if there are a lot of hits, I find it very hard to locate things and would REALLY LOVE to be able to switch it to alphabetical.

                          • Honed Autowrite

                            1) Autowrite often suggests incomplete phrases, for example finishing with an article e.g. "Compared to previous generations of aircraft, the"
                            or
                            "Before he knew, she"
                            I believe, this could be honed for Autowrite to show larger phrases, but also those that finish with a comma, those that are capitalized etc.
                            2) Autowrite should also be able to adapt the case of the suggested words from the TM. In other words, when I'm writing: "He wanted to eat a banana" and there's BANANA (all in caps) in TM, Autowrite should adapt the case and propose "banana" instead of "BANANA".
                            3) It…

                              A Bilingual/Multilingual Excel file import filter capable of importing existing translations, comments and character limitation fields.

                              Currently we can use External View RTF file to import existing translations and comments. And character limitation check is still possible through SQL.

                              If character limitation is supported, then QA should be able to check and warn where target segments exceed a certain number of characters. Currently, we can open the project file in MS Access and copy/paste the target character limitation in Source Comments column and check with the SQL filter: LEN(Target_XXXX) > Comments
                              or SQL Statement: UPDATE Pairs SET QA_XXXX = "character…

                              • Import/export support for SDLPPX/SDLRPX (Studio packages)

                                Should be possible to import an SDLPPX (project package) directly into new (or even existing) DVX project with resources and export an SDLRPX (return package) with the completed target files.

                                This functionality is already available in memoQ (though it is very slow to import SDLTMs).
                                It is partially available in Transit NXT (doesn't import resources, I think) and in Cafetran (though with alternative implementation - Cafetran reads SDLTMs, so does not need to import them; doesn't import/read SDLTBs at all).

                                Main benefit: dramatically reduces time to access SDL resources for any given project.

                                For example, I don't currently use DVX3…

                                        • Improvements to project templates

                                          Project templates are a very powerful tool.
                                          They would be even better if they allowed
                                          1) Project-specific segmentation rules
                                          2) Project-specific regex rules
                                          3) Dynamic update of connected lexicons
