Toppan Forms Introduces New Old Document Comparison Software Tool "SabunTrail"

November 6, 2014

Information Management Solution Provider Toppan Forms Co., Ltd. (Toppan Forms hereunder) will start marketing a packaged software tool "SabunTrail" that compares old and new word documents.

"SabunTrail" creates old and new comparison list side by side by just selecting two word document files. The software automatically detects revision, addition, and deletion. And by changing the color of texts, the revised locations can be recognized at single glance. It is much more accurate and efficient than the conventional method of comparing printed documents.

Example of Old and New Comparison List Showing the Difference


When companies in financial institution, pharmaceutical and manufacturing industries, local and national governments revise regulations and important documents, submission of both old and new version are often requested. Creating a comparison list is a heavy work burden when revised locations have to be extracted and listed from large volume of pages and texts. The cost to invest in an old and new comparison tool is expensive which hinders wide use.
The cost of "SabunTrail" is 19,800 yen per license (user). At an affordable price, the tool significantly reduces the work burden of processes related to identifying the difference between the old and new documents and creating a comparison list.


  • 1. Old and New Document Comparison Result Display Functionality
    Select between displaying all texts or only the revised locations. The comparison result can be displayed right and left alternately.
  • 2. Recognition Assistance Feature for Revised Locations
    Using different color for revised locations within the text, or adding annotations such as add and delete, prevents misuse between old and revised texts.
  • 3. Output Format Size Change Feature
    Designate print out size other than the documents that are being compared. i.e.)Compare A4 documents and display A3 size.
