You will notice that there are a great number of languages and sub-languages. Déjà Vu X3 Workgroup ranks the sub-languages hierarchically. If the program finds a exact or an equally fuzzy match with the same subject and client properties and the same source sub-language ( English (United States) , for instance) in the translation memory, it will choose it over another with a different source sub-language ( English (United States) vs. English (United Kingdom) , for instance). Further, it will prefer that constellation (different source sub-languages, equal target sub-languages) to a constellation where the source sub-languages are equal but the target sub-languages are different ( French (Standard) vs. French (Belgian) ).
It is possible to only retrieve matches with the specified sublanguage by selecting File> Options> Translation> Only show matches with the requested sublanguage File> Options> Translation> Only show matches with the requested sublanguage.
The list of displayed languages changes dynamically to display the last chosen languages at the top of the list.
