  1. Trim trailing and leading spaces

    DVX should automatically trim trailing and leading spaces in segments. This would much enhance hit precentages with regard to other CAT tools, like MemoQ and Studio, which do this, and save quite a lot of QA time. An added bonus would be having less segments in the TM as there would not be one with a trailing space and one without, for instance, all else being identical.

    • 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.

      • Let users install Déjà Vu on more than one computer without having to deactivate the key

        I wish to be able to work in Déjà Vu on both my main computer and my laptop without having to deactivate and activate the key each time I switch. Thanks!

        • 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…

              • 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.

                  • 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

                    • Bilingual/Multilingual Excel filter

                      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…

                        • Enable termbase selection for Add term pair dialog box

                          In the dialog box invoked by pressing F11 in DVX3, Add Term Pair, it would be not just nice but extremely convenient to have a list of the termbases being used for the project in view, with a check box beside each termbase. As a translator, I use multiple termbases for my health care, employee manual and benefits manual projects (as well as medical projects), and I use a legal termbase, a health care termbase and a Human Resources termbase altogether in the same project. To keep terms in their respective domains, however, it would be great to be able…

                          • Facilitate use of smart apostrophes and quotes in target language

                            Word-style automatic entry of smart punctuation during typing would be good automatic conversion of quote marks from source to target language conventions during assembly would be even better. And automatic conversion of straight punctuation in a TM hit to smart punctuation in the target segment would be the bees’ knees! All as configurable options of course...

                                • Change underlying db technology of TMs so we can handle bigger resources

                                  Have Atril ever considered switching to a better performing underlying database technology, so that users could use bigger TMs, and get better overall performance.

                                  I know that SDL Studio recently switched its TMs to SQLite, e.g., which is also what TMLookup uses, and CafeTran's "Total Recall" system. All of these programs are MUCH better at dealing with large amounts of data than the current Microsoft Jet (if that's what it's called) stuff Déjà Vu X3 uses. The system that DVX currently uses may have been sufficient a few years ago, but it is barely so anymore, and this is only…

                                    The sublanguages are of no use to me, they just create problems in case the wrong one is selected by me or a colleague. The option could be offered but made non mandatory.

                                        • Ignore the difference between smart apostrophe and straight apostrophe in term lookup/matching

                                          In the French language in particular the apostrophe is very heavily used. If the smart and straight apostrophes are treated as separate characters matching in memories and termbases is destroyed: terms like code de l’environnement étude d’impact avis de l’autorité environnementale etc. basically have to be entered twice once with the smart apostrophe and once with the straight apostrophe.
