Hi everybody!

I'm looking for a tool to compare two versions of the same .sdlxliff file. I am doing a revision and I would like to show the linguist the changes I've made in his translation.
I used to rely on the app SDLXLIFF Compare for this, but it isn't working on SDL Trados Studio 2014 SP1.
I tried Post-Edit Compare, but it seems too complex for the simple process I need.
I also tried with Change Tracker, but it doesn't show when the segment is a fuzzy or a 100% match. I really really need that info in the report.

Can you please suggest another tool I may be able to use to compare files?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Cecilia

Try re-installing Compare May 29, 2015

Hi Cecilia,

SDLXLIFF Compare should still work. I use Studio 2014 SP2 and it works fine, but in fact the Compare programme opens separately anyway. Perhaps you could try re-installing the Compare programme to see if that works?

Thanks! May 29, 2015

Thanks, Richard!
Your answer got me thinking and I realised that this problem started when I got my PC reinstalled with just SDL Trados Studio 2014 -and not 2011. Apparently, I need 2011 too for the app to work. I have just tried the app in a different PC that has both versions of Studio and it worked just fine --with the same files that didn't compare in my PC!
Thanks a lot for taking the time to give me an answer.
Kind regards,

Cecilia

You're right, the actual version of SDLXLIFF Compare (1.0.0.25) only works in Studio 2011 or 2009.

Missing it terribly with my Studio 2014…

Works perfectly on Studio 2014 May 30, 2015

I have an even older version (1.0.0.19), and it works perfectly well with Studio 2014 SP2.

Jesús, you can install Studio 2011 and Studio 2014 on the same computer using the same single licence you use for Studio 2014. I have both installed, which is great in case you have a problem with 2014.

Richard is right! Jun 1, 2015

As Richard said, you should install 2011 too in your computer. SDLXLIFF Compare is not the only app that works with previous versions of Studio. With both versions, you can access more of the wonders provided by Open Exchange. I currently am!
