I am still pretty new to using Trados. Today I received a DejaVu file for translation. I had advised the agency that I do not have DejaVu, but that I have Trados. Initially she wanted to resend the files in Trados, which has not happened.

I would like to know how can I import the DejaVu file into Trados myself?

Thanks for your help.

Best regards

what do you mean? Apr 3, 2003

What do you mean by \"DejaVU\" file? DV handles a large variety of standard file formats (doc, rtf, xls, txt, html, etc., plus Trados pretranslated rtf files). The source file looks like any normal file of the given application.

If you still have doubts, try checking the DV website at

Open \"Documentation\": you fill find a Trados-Dv compatibility guide. You can also try asking questions at the Dv mailing list under \"Support\".

Good luck!
