Hi all,

Could someone suggest a professional indexing software.

Unfortunatelly, Windows 7 Indexing tool on my desktop fails to index all my working files, stored on my business server (SBS 2008). As a result, it costs me too much time to find a file by searching for a word or expression.

Archivarius 3000 Feb 10, 2011

Hi Sherefedin,

I use Archivarius 3000 and am quite happy with it. Depending on the number of documents the indexes may be quite large (one of mine has about 4GB), but the program is very handy and quite simple in use.

Copernic desktop search Feb 10, 2011

I have used it for several years now and am quite happy with its performance.it is much better than Windows indexing. First of all it categorises your search results in documents, e-mails, contacts, history etc. Additionally after getting results you can apply filters according to the document type, date.

Same with Archivarius Feb 10, 2011

It indexes all kinds of text files, email, pdfs, archived and image files, translation memories and much more.

indexing of TMs Feb 11, 2011

Hello Natalia,
That sounds very interesting: is Archivarius able to index TMs in the TMX and SDLTM (Trados Studio) formats - or only those under the txt format?

Many thanks

Sorry for the delayed response Feb 11, 2011

Hi Aude,

Unfortunately, Archivarius does not index SLDTM - most probably because this format is rather new. However, it does index TMX and MDB.

PDFs and ITD files are also indexed as well.

Hi Natalia,

Thank you.
It would have been great, but you must be right, Studio's format may be too new...
Anyway if it can index TMXs that's already quite nice! As far as I know (and see), Win 7's search tool cannot.
The ability to index PDFs is interesting too.

Thanks for the tip!

Aude

dtSearch Feb 12, 2011

Try this one - http://www.dtsearch.com/
It indexes everything - even pdf's in e-mails and archives.

a small note: Feb 12, 2011

Be careful: even though a program can index TMX files, that doesn't mean it can actually display them without causing your PC to grind to a halt every time you click on a TMX in the results display.

Copernic is probably the best all round desktop search client, but most PCs aren't stong enough to display the preview of a TMX.
However, Copernic is great at previewing Word documents, and PDF's, which is why it is so useful.

If you are looking for terms in (large) TMXs, it's best to use Copernic to locate an instance of your search term, and then check the size of the file in question before clicking on it to preview it. If it is very large, simply navigate to the file in question and open it in a text editor, preferably one that specialises in LARGE files, such as UltraEdit.

Even on my Win7 - 64 bit - i7 quad core - 12 GB RAM - SSD hard drive, etc PC, every desktop search client I have tried (X1, dtSearch, Copernic, Windows search on XP/Vista/7, Archivarius, etc) stalls on files much larger than 20-30 MB.

Set max content buffer? Feb 13, 2011

In Wilbur (an ancient indexer that chokes on 1+GB files) you can set the maximum content buffer. In other words, if a file is above this threshold, it won't attempt to display it in the preview pane. Don't modern indexers have such a setting?

@Samuel Feb 13, 2011

Copernic can do this too, but if I do this, I won't know if the term I am looking for is there or not. I find it better to allow Copernic to index the file anyway, and then just open it in UltraEdit.

From my own experience Feb 13, 2011

Copernic is very uncomfortable in use. I uninstalled it after a few days.

Just out of curiosity, which program do you use instead?
