Déjà Vu X3 has a new filter for the Microsoft Office documents, the Microsoft Office Live filter. This filter can be used to import and export documents generated by any version of Office's Applications, from 2003 to the 2013. This new filter will only be available in Déjà Vu X3.
The new filter has the following advantages over the filters for Microsoft Word available in previous versions of Déjà Vu:
- It supports the new Live Preview functionality of Déjà Vu X3. With this feature, you will be able to see text formatted the way it is in the original document: text that was in bold in the document will be displayed in bold in the Translation Grid inside Déjà Vu X3, and text that is underlined or in italics will displayed with the same formatting as well.
- It will produce fewer tags in the project. Using CodeZapper will no longer be necessary with the new filter.
- It will not require that a copy of Microsoft Word be installed in the system in order to import or export documents. The filter for Word 2003 format that was available in previous versions of Déjà Vu required that a copy of Word be installed on the system in order to help Déjà Vu process the document before importing, and could not work without a copy of Word installed. The new filter, like the filter for Word 2007/2010 format that was available before, will be able to operate independently of Microsoft Word.
