While attempting to analyze a file in SDLX, I get a message saying the analysis has been interrupted.

A look at the log file tells me that SDLX is running in demo mode and I need to activate the license.

I activated the license for SDL Trados 2007 long ago, but had never used SDLX until now.

Activation instructions tell me to use a wizard, which I can't find or a menu option under the Help menu, which isn't there, probably because all help files for SDLX are disabled under Vista.

Other than this, the program works fine, as far as I can tell (with my very limited experience in SDLX).

Does anyone know if I really need a separate license activation for SDLX?

Thanks!

Nora

Which version? Jan 28, 2008

Hi Nora,
I believe that, depending of which version of SDL Trados you use, you cannot perform analysis.

Hi Nora,

Lorena is correct, the Analyse and Apply functions are only available in the Professional version of SDLX. I assume you have the Freelance version, which means you will not be able to use them.

HTH

Best regards,
Claudia

Yep, freelance version Jan 28, 2008

Yes, I have the freelance version, so it sounds like that's it.

That's ok anyway, since I discovered a nice little feature in SDL Edit that gave me the info I needed: View-Statistics.

Thanks!

Nora

Hi,

just a quick note to warn you: the statistics tool only provides information on the translation process in the file. It does not take repetitions into account. To make it clearer: you won't be able to use it for comparison with an analysis log sent by a client, because the wordcounts will always be higher.
However, that is one tool that I find great in SDLX, because it allows you to track your progress.

Cheers,

Annelise

Good point. Another question: time stamps? Jan 29, 2008

Hi Annelise,

That's exactly what I wanted to do, to keep track of my progress, so the limited info it provides was enough.

I loved that it was so quick, no need to run an analysis, something that I'm doing constantly in Trados to keep track of how much untranslated text I still have. Having said that, it would be nice to see all the numbers at a glance, rather than having to check/uncheck boxes.

By the way, something I like about Trados is that it shows you time information about the translation units, so you can see when a TU was created or modified. Is there a way to see this info in SDLX? I tried but couldn't find it.

Thanks!

Nora
