        • Improve XML filter

          Include conditional import of XML cells based on attribute content. XPath support would be nice but only for hyper users. Trados Studio 2014 even offers full XPath support for highly customized XML translation including an embedded HTML/*ML filter layer. And I have used it on several occasions. Guus from Beta

          • Segment comments permanently visible in dedicated (dockable) pane?

            It would be cool if any segment comments were permanently visible in dedicated (dockable) pane. It's annoying having to click on them each time to see them.

            • Give us the whole plethora of segment sorting of MQ

              Over a dozen of criteria in MW, like short/long source/destination, by match rate, inverted, status, inverted, just copy what MW offers... with that easy drop down "View" list.

              • Offer student, newly Graduate rebate or University pricing for DV

                When entering the market, students and new graduates need to choose a CAT tool. Why not offer student or group price to these people? SDL offers such pricing to these categories of clients... and it works! Why not offer University pricing? DV could be taught in Translation programs, like Studio is.

                • Better filters to import and export TBX or termbases

                  DVX3 can import and export translation memories, why not termbases for exchanging between other CAT tools? Right now, DVX3 requires several clicks to export a termbase, first to convert it to an Excel sheet, which is unnecessarily clumsy and obsolete as a solution.

                            • Auto-Concordance

                              DVX, similarly to MemoQ's LSC could also automatically display phrases it has found in the SOURCE segments of the TM, signalling to the user that a given phrase exists in the TM. Deepminer is a great mechanism, but it's based on statistics, which means that a phrase needs to appear several times in the TM for the Deepminer to utilize it and suggest the translation.
                              LSC, on the other hand is free from such worries, because it doesn't suggest translations, it only searches for expressions in source segments, thus informing you that you have already translated something similar.
                              It's something…

                                When looking up the project TMs for certain terms / phrases (by Ctrl+S), you should be able to delete / change some of the then shown entries from the chosen project TM you regard as faulty / superfluous.

                                  I have several sets of "Find what" and "Replace with" regular expressions which I use frequently. it would be nice if I could store them for later re-use, like I can with SQL expressions.

                                  • Improvements for Add Term Pair dialog box

                                    I use (create, maintain, import/export) termbases in DVX3 asiduously. The F11 shortcut to add a bilingual term pair is a timesaver. I have a couple of recommendations to improve the dialog box for F11:

                                    1) Give corner extension handles or controls to view the full Context box.
                                    2) Add vertical scroll arrows to the Context box.
                                    3) Add font size preferences specific to the Add Term Pair dialog box.

                                    Please make it happen. Thank you.

                                    • On-the-fly re-segmentation/joining segments with defined rules

                                      I work on DE-EN legal texts and there are often a LOT of abbreviations ending e.g. in a full stop, which means I do a lot of merging. It's not worth creating segmentation rules for any particular job, as the abbreviations often only occur in the specific job.

                                      What I would like is to be able to tell DVX to e.g. join all segments ending in "S." to the next segment in each case in the whole document/project, perhaps even with some sort of preview.

                                      This would probably just mean writing and implementing some good REGEX, wouldn't it?

                                      I think…

                                      • Inline formatting in RTF external view files

                                        When exporting RTF (either two-column or Trados workbench), inline bold/italic/etc. formatting should be exported as such, rather than as {00xxx} codes. And when reimporting, inline formatting in the RTF file should optionally be imported as such.

                                        • Propagate duplicates when reimporting an external view

                                          When reimporting an external view file that was exported with the "Suppress duplicate segments" option, offer to automatically propagate after import so as to fill in the missing duplicates. The same rules as for normal propagation would need to apply, so that existing validated segments are not overwritten.
