Hi everyone,

Does anyone know a program that compares two different documents, i.e., two guideline books with (hopefully) text equal to both in some parts. I need to know how much text is equal (so that I only have to translate it once)- before beginning with the translation.

Thanks in advance.

I used MS Word for comparing text documents. Select \"Tools\" then \"Track changes\" then \"Compare documents.\"

Just convert documents you need to compare into Word-compatible format (if needed), open both documents and use Tools\\Track changes\\Compare documents.



MS Word compatible formats: .doc, .rtf, .txt, .html

... provided the texts are available in a format which the program can read.
