Import two-column RTF documents
The Document import options dialog appears when you select an RTF file to import as a bilingual document, and the file contains one or more documents in multi-column tables.
How to begin
In the Translations pane of Project home, click the Import with options button on the Documents ribbon tab. Then, in the Open dialog that appears, select an RTF document that contains one or more documents as a multi-column table. memoQ will automatically detect the document type.
General settings section:
•Tags must be formatted with the mqInternal style check box: When you turn this on, memoQ will look for parts formatted in the mqInternal style. Only those parts will be imported as formatting tags that are formatted in this style. This option is turned off by default.
•Update target segment even if source is different in imported file check box: When updating an existing document from a multi-column RTF table, memoQ can perform extra checks to make sure that no segment is destroyed by accident. Among those, memoQ can check if the source segment is the same in the memoQ document and in the RTF document. By checking this check box, you can instruct memoQ to skip the segment if the source text is different from the content in memoQ. This option is turned off by default.
In this section, memoQ lists the documents that are already there in your memoQ project. You can decide if you want to update those in the project.

In this section, memoQ lists the documents that have no corresponding documents in your memoQ project. You can decide if you want to add those to the project.
