I am a Trados user and since a few years I do not need any dongle anymore. I was wondering whether it is also the case for Déjà Vu. Is the latest version of Déjà Vu Dongle free?
I may have found this info somewhere but I am running short of time.
Thanks for your answer and for your time.

| Dongle required... || Dec 10, 2008 |
As I far as I know you need the dongle to run DVX. It's not required only for the free version - DVX Editor. However, it does not cause any problems. It's small and handy. And, what is very important, you don't need to "return" your activation code through a website (like with Trados) to run DVX on a different computer - all you need is just to plug the dongle in and that's it

I don't even want to think about going through the whole procedure Trados would impose on me just when I would like to install the application on a different machine. As far as I know, Atril does not intend to give up the dongle requirement, but I have heard that Atril supplies activation codes in exceptional cases when dongles do not work. But that would be subject to individual negotiation with them.

| Atril's dongle policies || Dec 10, 2008 |
I rather like dongles because of the flexibility they give me. However, like all hardware, they are subject to failure. Or they can be lost. Atril has the best replacement policy I have encountered yet for these cases, for which I am very grateful. I own a certain SDL localization product that cost me over 4500 euros, and when the dongle for it got lost on a trip I was told I would have to pay full price for a replacement. Maybe I can argue my way out of this one, maybe not, but since I take a generally dim view of what goes on under the SDL roof anyway I'm not in a hurry at the moment. I just know that I wouldn't have this issue with Atril.
