Hi. I have a few TMs created with a trial version of DVX some years ago. I would now like to read them and rescue terminology from them. Is there any program besides proprietary Atril software that would do the job?

TIA

Reed

DVX2 trial Mar 13, 2013

Have you tried installing a DVX2 trial? If possible, that would be the easiest way to export your TM's to TMX.

Even if you are still using the same computer onto which you installed the DVX trial several years ago, chances are you'd be able to install the DVX2 trial, since it's a different version. And if it's not possible, you can always install the trial on another computer, or if you don't have one, on a virtual machine.

ApSIC Xbench Mar 13, 2013

Hi Reed

You can use the free version ApSIC Xbench (2.9).
http://www.xbench.net/index.php/download

But why don't you give a try to the new DVX2?

Are you talking about the *.MDB files here? Or about exported tab-delimited text files?

DVMDB.
E.g. see an image at http://www.xbench.net/
Probably it works correctly now in the 3.x versions which are Unicode enabled (I didn't test it).
XBench 2.x produced corrupt diacritics for most language pairs.
The export is strictly bilingual i.e. if your TM contains multiple languages, you'll need to export separately every language pair.

1-year subscription for the new version of Xbench will be EUR 99 (EUR 79 until March 18), on the other hand you can buy DVX2 at EUR 250 http://www.proz.com/tgb/730

TOPIC STARTER
Will try the demo Mar 13, 2013

At one time, I was testing several CATs, and DVX was one of them. I, for one am a Wordfast Pro user and am content with it. I hadn't thought about the demo, because a lot of supposedly proprietary file formats can be opened in Notepad and other available programs.

So I will give the demo a try since I have only about 2 or 3 DVX TMs.
