Hello Dear DVX users!

I'm Matylda, and I'm the new social media & community manager at Atril. I'm glad I can meet here the users of DVX and I will try to assist you with any queries concerning our software.

We do appreciate your opinions and are happy to listen to your suggestions on how we could improve Déjà Vu and make it even more user-friendly. That is why, we have launched an ideas platform available at https://dejavu.uservoice.com/. Feel free to add your own ideas and vote on those submitted by others.

To be able to participate, you simply need to sign up with your e-mail, Facebook or Google profile. For the sake of clarity of the forum, please try to keep the number of ideas submitted per one user below 10, and place each one in a separate post with a short heading that describes the idea in a concise way.

We will be happy to learn what you would like to change and improve.
Cheers!

Matylda

I believe that it's a very good idea that Atril have come up with the new platform, because it helps organize the ideas and, hopefully, prioritize them.

Over the years the suggestions have been scattered in various topics in this forum, sometimes in the main topic, sometimes somewhere in the thread. Now, finally we can place our requests where they are seen clearly .

A similar, perhaps slightly more restrictive (only for licensed users) forum is run by SDL for their various products (including Trados, of course) and it seems to be working. People can discuss there there ideas and see if many other users need the same thing or perhaps they are alone with their wishes.

On the other hand, I don't expect that even the idea with the biggest number of votes will be implemented in the new incarnation of DVX. As the case of SDL Ideas proves, sometimes there are some programming limitations that restrict the introduction of even the best ideas (e.g. Reverse TM in Trados - people would like to see it, but it turns out it's hardly possible to implement in Studio).

Anyway, I love it.

QA funtion for missing spaces? May 15

Need to make the keyboard command functional to check missing spaces. QA menu has S underlined but, at least in my program, ALT+s does nothing.

Um, this is a Proz forum, not an Atril forum May 15

Sure, many users have discussed improvements and wishlists for their preferred CAT tools here, but no CAT tool vendor has ownership to those in a third-party forum such as this.

It is only fitting that each CAT tool developer builds his/her own ideas platform, but not here.

Hi Matylda,

That's excellent news about the Déjà Vu ideas platform, and especially good news Atril have hired a new social media & community manager. Engagement with your users is as important as the features of the tool itself. If users feel they are being listened to, and can communicate with the people behind their tool, a sense of community will develop, which is a great thing. Not just for us users, but also for sales, of course, as happy users will promote the tool among their colleagues (for free). But I probably don't need to tell you any of this

Déjà Vu X3 is my favourite CAT tool at the moment, and so I am hoping that some of our ideas will make it into the new version scheduled to be released in the summer (or so we've been told via the grapevine). Do you have any info on the new version?

Michael

Thanks for the welcome May 15

Thank you for the warm welcome

As for the new iteration of Déjà Vu, I don't have any specific information beyond the ones already provided to you by Etienne, but rest assured that should I get any info, I'll be more than happy to share it with you.
I know that, as of now, it's not very informative, but I hope that within the next few months I will be bringing you lots of good news.

Cheers!
Matylda

How about a Mac-compatible DVX3 version? May 16

I know I'm asking for the moon but having DVX3 work natively on my Mac OSX 10.11.6 (El Capitan) would be extra cool.

In the meantime, I'm just happy using DVX3 in Parallels 11 (in El Capitan, on my travel 15-inch MacBook Pro) and work with my Adobe applications for my select clients (InDesign, Illustrator mostly).

Cheers!

Mario

Why not? This happens to be "Technical forums » Déjà Vu support"

If Proz has a forum for DVX technical issues, it is for translators using that tool, not for Atril, the software maker.

Proz has no obligation to offer a free platform or forum to a software developer (SDL, Atril, CafeTrans, Lingotek, etc.) nor to fulfill a role that belongs to the developer.

Is this so difficult to understand?

Dear Mario,

Thank you for your comment, but I must point out that you are wrong.

Proz.com forums are a means of communicating between the software maker and the users as well. Actually, this is one of their most important features. For years we have been asking Atril to frequent this forum and reply to user concerns, so their presence here is most welcome.

Actually, Atril is under no obligation to visit or provide help on this forum, but if they do, it is a benefit for us, so let us hope they keep up the good work.

Best regards,
PTs

Pavel, thank you for making my point for me.

Proz users may even ask Microsoft, Adobe or other software makers to come to these technical forums and read our comments, complaints of use and suggestions for improvements. I repeat, none of these vendors have any obligation to come here, read our comments or use Proz forums in any way since they already have their own user forums.

I repeat, is this so difficult to understand?
