July 2015 - Déjà Vu X3 9.0.730

Features and Fixes History from DVX3 9.0.723 to DVX3 9.0.730

Features

  1. Added updated help files for Déjà Vu X3.

  3. Added support for locking editing of source segments by default (you can unlock them with Alt+F2).
  4. Added support for regular expressions in Find & Replace.
  5. Added support for detecting and replacing non-translatables in fuzzy match repairs:
    • When Déjà Vu X3 tries to identify the translation for the term(s) being replaced, it will use the source term itself if it can't find an official translation in the lexicon, TB(s) and/or TM(s).
    • If the source term being replaced has been deemed to be non-translatable (no translation for it was available, and same source term was found in the translated segment of the fuzzy match) the replacement term is also considered to be non-translatable; in other words, if no translation for it can be found in the lexicon, TB(s) or TM(s), Déjà Vu X3 will simply insert the source term.

February 2014 - Déjà Vu X3 9.0.686

Feature List for Déjà Vu X3 9.0.686

Usability

User Interface

The User Interface has completely been redesigned to make your daily Déjà Vu experience intuitive and straightforward:

  • The Start screen provides quick access to all of your recent files and the creation of new modules.
  • The Ribbon approach ensures all Déjà Vu functionalities are visible and thus available, guiding you through translation best practices.
  • Throughout Déjà Vu, the contextual help guides through all of its functionalities.
  • Customize and hide the Ribbon at your convenience to enhance your productivity.
  • With the customizable Quick Access Toolbar you can access all functionalities you need in a single click.
  • Move the translation grid, Project Explorer, Preview as well as AutoSearch window to where it suits you best. If you’re using a second screen, why not move individual windows there so you can focus on the translation grid?

Inline Formatting

Apply formatting of your text directly through the ribbon or keyboard shortcuts that are consistent with those of Microsoft Office.

Inline formatting also contributes to a considerable decrease in tags within the translation grid.

Manage All of Your Resources in One Go

Déjà Vu X3 centralizes all of your resources, for you to configure which – portions of – databases you want to use in your translations.

You can configure everything with a few clicks through the new Translate feature and apply it directly to AutoTranslate, whether you want to use

  • Fuzzy Match Repair or Assemble,
  • Machine Translation for Fuzzy Match Repair or entire segments,
  • Minimum scores for Translation Memory and Termbase separately,
  • Restrictions on client, subject and or sub-language specific entries from your databases,
  • Or any of the many other possibilities.

 

Live Preview & Source Context

Multi-file Live Preview for Office Word, Excel and PowerPoint

With Déjà Vu X3’s new Live Preview, you can follow your translation progress within Office Word, Excel and PowerPoint files in real time.

You do not even need to have Office installed!

Multi-file Live Preview for Office Word, Excel and PowerPoint

Imagine working on a multi-file project with dozens or hundreds of files in different folders and subfolders. The Live Preview and Source Context will make sure you keep control over your source and target files.

Multi-file Source Context

For non-Office file formats, the Preview window shows the source context of your segment, extremely useful for localization project and IT related formats where important information on your file is displayed directly in Déjà Vu.

 

Quality Assurance

Inline spell-checker

Déjà Vu X3’s built-in spell checker, using Hunspell, highlights spelling mistakes for you. Right-click on the underlined word and choose the appropriate solution from the available suggestions.

A total of 46 different dictionaries are at your disposal. Your language is not included? Simply add your own or download available dictionaries to include them to your proofing options.

Comparing source to TM segment

Monitor all changes between your source segment and Translation Memory directly in the AutoSearch Window. The display of differences between source and segments improves your productivity especially when post-editing fuzzy matches. The changes are displayed in the Scan function as well.

Viewing Termbase attributes

If you need to access all the information related to your terms, such as gender, context and all attributes of your termbases, have a look at your term in AutoSearch, and view all the attributes related to it from there!

If you need to access all the information related to your terms, such as gender, context and all attributes of your termbases, have a look at your term in AutoSearch, and view all the attributes related to it from there!

New Segment Statuses: Translated, Proofread, Approved

Set your translation mode in Déjà Vu X3 indicating if you are translating, proofreading or validating the segments while confirming them. The new segment status Translated, Proofread and Approved thus distinguishes between the different steps of your projects using translation best practices.

 

Filters and Interoperability

Office Word, Excel and PowerPoint

Déjà Vu X3 has new Office filters that result in industry-leading import speed for Word, Excel and PowerPoint while considerably reducing the number of tags in the translation grid.

XLIFF

When preparing an XLIFF file with different tools, embedded HTML may result which would appear in the translation grid. The new XLIFF filter converts embedded HTML into tags, contributing to a neater translation environment.

XLIFF for SDLXLIFF

Import SDL Trados Studio files into Déjà Vu X3 more easily with the improved XLIFF filter.

YAML

This human-readable data serialization format serialization format can now be imported directly into Déjà Vu X3.

QuickSilver

For improved handling of QuickSilver files use this updated filter.

 

Automation

Database restriction

Set in your projects an automatic database restriction according to client, subject and/or sub-languages for an optimized process with both TEAMserver and large local databases.

Update notifications

Atril will be releasing regular updates for your Déjà Vu X3 license. With the automatic update notification you can trust that you are working with the latest available Déjà Vu X3 version and always benefit from the latest improvements and features.

Machine Translation Module - Second release

Machine Translation quick user guide to use the module and get all its benefits!

Download it here and use the Machine Translation module straight away!

 

Combine your databases with Machine Translation intelligently for more productivity

Machine Translation has now become incontrovertible in the translation industry. At ATRIL, we put all our efforts into providing the best possible help to all the players in translation industry. As a result, we have designed a Machine Translation module within Déjà Vu X2 that has a comprehensive set of options to provide full flexibility and customization. Machine Translation can be applied at different levels, and in particular you can combine your Translation Memories and Termbases with Machine Translation entries.

We consider that a match repaired with Machine Translation will usually be better than a normal fuzzy match, and better than an entire Machine Translated segment. Your own data is considered to be of higher quality and will always have priority over the Machine Translation results.

 

Advanced Machine Translation Module in Déjà Vu - Complete set of options for full flexibility and customization

  1. Use Machine Translation at any level you'd like: project, file, segment, sub-segment and term level, after defining your favourite settings in a mere click.
  2. Déjà Vu AutoSearch window can display Machine Translation results: insert it smoothly in a single click or shortcut if the translation is right.
  3. Hit the road to success with the Translation Memory and Machine Translation smart combination: set up the Assemble and Fuzzy Match Repair options with Machine Translation and post-edit the results in one go with the new “Repaired” status filter.

  3. Déjà Vu X2 creates 10 times fewer embedded codes than other tools, thanks to the CodeZapper Macro.

February 2012 - Déjà Vu X2 8.0.533

Manage your multilingual TMs in a couple of clicks!


Two new options available in TMs
 
1. Automatic consolidation merges all non-conflicting translations for the same source segment into a single entry. This means you can get more out of the reverse function and significantly streamline your TM with a mere click.
 
Consolidate your TM by using the Translation Memory / Consolidate Duplicates menu option, as shown in the screenshot below.


Meaning of consolidation

Consolidation merges entries with translations in different target languages for the same source into a single entry.
 
If your TM originally contains:

After consolidation the TM will contain:


This results in two main benefits:

 
The size of your TM can be considerably reduced.
 
The Reverse function becomes more powerful, since it allows you to work with additional language pairs.
 
For example, by consolidating the TM entries in the previous example, I will be able to obtain additional translations for various source and target language pairs, as shown in the table below.


Yes
: translation is available and displayed in the AutoSearch window.


No
: translation is not available.
 
Watch our e-learning video on Consolidation here.
 
2. Mark and delete duplicates for all target languages at once.
 
When looking for duplicates in your TM, you now have the possibility to delete all the redundant segments with identical source and target in all target languages at the same time.

You can of course still use this option for one target language at a time.

November 2011 - Déjà Vu X2 8.0.519

Support for Google Translate version 2

As from 1 December 2011 Google Translate will be available as a paid service.

However, you can keep using Google Translate from your Déjà Vu environment as before if you want!

To do so, get your own Google account here. Google will provide you with a key and will charge you on a monthly basis. The cost is directly related to your use, on a basis of 20 euros per million characters entered in your Google Translate account. To use the Google Translate function in Déjà Vu as before, first enter your Google API key in the Tools/Options/Machine Translation menu.

Watch our e-learning video to find out exactly how it works.

October 2011 - Déjà Vu X2 8.0.505

It's Déjà Vu but it's all NEW: Embedded Objects in Microsoft Office filter


Import and export complex Microsoft Office documents with embedded objects smoothly.

Follow this link to watch our e-learning video and discover how to use the feature.

When updating Déjà Vu X2 to the latest build, Déjà Vu X2 automatically installs add-ins for Microsoft Office 2007/2010, which are visible in the ribbon as a new group labelled Déjà Vu X2. There are two possible file types with embedded objects you can process with DVX2.

First case: your source document has been created with Microsoft Office 2007/2010

  1. Import the document into a Déjà Vu X2 project, making sure to select the Microsoft Office 2007/2010 Open XML as the filter in the File Properties window. You can then carry out the translation and export your translated documents.
  2. When opening the exported file, click on the “Refresh All Objects” button on the Déjà Vu X2 ribbon tab to be able to see the translated embedded objects.

Second case: your source document has been created or partly created with Microsoft Office 2003

  1. To check if your document contains legacy Microsoft Office 2003 objects, open it in Microsoft Office 2007/2010. Click on the “Check All Objects” button on the Déjà Vu X2 ribbon tab. This will provide you with the information on the number and type of embedded objects included in your document.
  2. If your document contains legacy Office 2003 objects, click on “Convert All Objects To Office 2007/2010”. This will convert your document and its embedded objects to the 2007/2010 format. Close the document.
  3. You can now import the document into a Déjà Vu X2 making sure to select the Microsoft Office 2007 Open XML as the filter in the File Properties window. You can then carry out the translation and export your translated documents.
  4. When opening the exported file, click on the “Refresh All Objects” button on the Déjà Vu X2 ribbon tab to be able to see the translated embedded objects.

Microsoft Office filter


Advanced options for importing and exporting Microsoft Office documents
  1. Streamline your work with Word files by eliminating superfluous codes with
    CodeZapper
    . Activating the “Run CodeZapper” option when importing a Microsoft Office word file automatically eliminates all the unnecessary embedded codes from your Déjà Vu project. This option is accessible from the File Properties window. Watch our e-learning video on CodeZapper
    here.
  2. Whatever Office version you are using, always benefit from extensive import and export options. Watch our e-learning video here and discover how to choose the options.

Nested Filter

1. Automatically process embedded HTML markup in your XML, Office 2007 and 2010 documents.

To do so, simply check the option “Process Embedded HTML” in the File Properties window before importing your file.

2. Use regular expressions* to easily turn any type of non-translatable content into Déjà Vu codes.

Enter one or more regular expressions, separated by |, which is the regex OR operator in the option “Ignore Regex Matches” of your import properties. Any portion of the extracted segments which matches the regular expression is converted into an embedded code. Learn how to specify your regex with this e-learning video.

* What are regular expressions?

Regular expressions provide a concise and flexible means for "matching", i.e. specifying and recognizing, strings of text, such as particular characters, words, or patterns of characters. The regular expressions follow the ICU syntax described at http://userguide.icu-project.org/strings/regexp.

August 2011 - Déjà Vu X2 8.0.486

New Analysis function

Redesigned, intuitive and flexible functionality

We redesigned this function with two main objectives in mind:
  1. To provide complete transparency and control over the new functionality, by allowing users to customize its behavior through a comprehensive set of options. The additional functions are disabled by default, ensuring a smooth transition for Déjà Vu clients accustomed to the previous functionality.
  2. To provide the widest range of choices in order to fulfill everyone's expectations.

The analysis functionality is available under the menu Tools/Analysis. Choose the settings that suit you best in the left column, and see the results in the analysis window, as shown in the screenshot below.



New options: Intra-project Analysis and Inter-project Analysis for greater efficiency


Intra-project Analysis: Assess with greater accuracy, ensure the best quality

Intra-project Analysis aims to optimize your analysis by looking into repetitions and similarities within your project. In other words, it assesses the homogeneity of your project. The software cross-analyzes all the segments contained in the project in order to simulate the results that would be obtained by automatically sending them to the TM and/or auto-propagating them during the translation. Running an analysis with this option provides you with a good overview of how to best manage your project: as a freelance translator, you benefit from a more accurate assessment of time and effort required for your project; as a project manager, you are informed of potential redundancy. These results help you to ensure the homogeneity of the translation and thus its quality.


Inter-project Analysis: Forecast, optimize, increase your productivity

Inter-project Analysis allows you to simulate how the completion of other translation projects already in progress would affect the new incoming project. The software compares the content of the newly created project with the content of the project(s) you are working on or which you are waiting to receive from translators. If there are similarities between these projects, the number of guaranteed, exact and fuzzy matches in the incoming project will increase in the analysis, while the number of segments without matches will decrease, reflecting the result of sending the completed ongoing projects to the TM. This enables you, as a freelance translator or a project manager, to predict how ongoing projects will affect your future work, optimize your planning and enhance your productivity.

Complete HTML and CSV report saving

You can save your report in HTML format for official reports, as well as export the analysis results to a CSV file for further data mining.

New Word Count

Counting words in documents can be quite complex and each software tool has its own way of defining what a word is. In DVX2 build 8.0.486, you can choose between Déjà Vu's counting rules and those of Microsoft Word.


Differences between Microsoft Word and Déjà Vu for word counting rules

The main differences between Microsoft Word's count and Déjà Vu's count are related to numbers and how certain separators are handled. For example:

- Déjà Vu does not count numbers as words whereas Word does.

- Word allows a wide range of characters to be present inside words, such as dashes, hyphens and several other types of symbols.

- Déjà Vu only allows apostrophes in contractions for specific languages.



You can select one type of word count or the other when conducting a word count or an analysis in Déjà Vu X2 (under the menu Tools/Word Count and Analysis).



New Feature in DVX2 Professional version: DVX2 Pro 5

From now on, attach up to 5 TMs and 5 TBs in a single project with the DVX2 Professional version.
