I don't know where to find this setting. Every time I type a new sentence, I need to press shift to get the first capital letter. Would you help me? I do appreciate it.

A bit surprised here Dec 22, 2016

I didn't know that there might exist such a feature. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems quite natural to start a sentence with a capital letter by using a SHIFT + a letter. Is it possible to do it automatically? Perhaps yes, but I believe 99% of us use shift, don't they?

AutoCorret? Dec 22, 2016

Hi Lotusgrass,

Capitalize first letter of sentences is an option in Word. You can import Word's AutoCorrect list into DVX but you cannot import those rules, e.g. Correct TWo INitial CApitals, Capitalize first letter of sentences.

A segment is not always a sentence in CAT tools. It can be a single word, a number and depending on the segmentation rules it can end with a semicolon (;) and start in a small case.

Other CAT tools may support your request (possibly as an option hidden in the settings), but DVX3 does not support it. You can request that feature from Atril.

Hi Akyuz ,

I see. Thanks! But Trados has this feature.

it is not available in DVX3 Dec 23, 2016

It is under Options>Editor>AutoCorrect in Studio. But I don't find it useful because we translate segments not sentences. That said, optional features are good. You can ask this feature to be implemented at https://atrilsolutions.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
