Is there any way to check the consistency in numbers between the source and target in the Editor edition of Deja Vu X?

Many thanks

Probably not Jun 16, 2010

I don't have a definitive answer, but the Editor version is severely limited (and so is the Standard version), so I assume the answer is no.

No, probably not Jun 16, 2010

It is just so frustrating that it is not possible to export anything, nor copy out several segements or anything. I can only trust myself to visually check each segment, which is pretty sore for the eye for over 3000 segments...

Thanks for your reply in any case

Get DVX Pro Jun 16, 2010

You really need the DVX Pro version to do any 'proper' work with DVX in 'production mode'.

Not worth it Jun 16, 2010

I know, but it is not really worth it. I have just the one client who uses Deja Vu X, every single other client is on TRADOS. Maybe I'll get my husband to check the numbers

What the client uses is irrelevant - it is YOUR choice Jun 16, 2010

For a more general discussion of such issues you may find my article "What makes a good
agency" of interest - see

QA is always worth it :=) Jun 16, 2010

I'd second Herbert here.

I use DVX for all of my clients, regardless of the final format requested for the translation.

Sure, it adds an extra step, but I do it for the same reason behind your initial query: QA.

I prefer TRADOS Jun 16, 2010

Thank you for your responses.

Maybe I should have pointed out earlier that I actually prefer TRADOS, I find a great deal of useful functionality with the software, including QA checks, TMs, MultiTerm and many more (perhaps the same functionality is in Deja VU in the other editions), but I love the interface of Trados 100 %. Deja Vu is better in the way that you can filter by terminology, which I do not believe you can do in Trados.
Yes, of course it is up to me what to choose - apart from being unable to open .dvsat files in Trados... I use it for every other project, even when the client don't ask me to.
I think I would make a good saleswoman for SDL

I invested in Trados 2009 last year and I have earned back what it cost me, through usage many times over. The only drawback I find with the Deja Vu Editor edition is not being able to check the numbers. Maybe I could have done the translations quicker somehow with more functionalities, however, at the time being it is not suitable for me to invest nearly 1000 Euros on the Pro version.

The price for DVX Pro is 660 euros Jun 16, 2010

I don't know of any other translator who is familiar with both DVX and Trados and actually prefers Trados

You can't really make a proper comparison between Trados and DVX Editor (it would like comparing, say, a Ford Mondeo with a Goggo). You would really have to 'test-drive' DVX Pro properly for a proper comparison and in order to experience the 'Ferrari effect'.

And by the way, the price is 660 euros, not "nearly 1000 euros".

I do not know where you can got it cheaper, but surely there is a second hand market.
And so far I can remember, Atril had a full trial license policy lasting for one month or so:
