On a memoQ server, you can set up an online project that take the source-language materials from a content source. In such projects, you do not import source-language documents manually. Instead, memoQ server connects to the content source, and automatically adds new or updated documents to the project. You can create a content-connected project without using a template or use a template.

memoQ has a default Content connector template which you can find in the Resource console > Project templates.

The Content connector template contains:

no configuration for the project name and the project languages

memoQ also detects your source language when you create a project from this template. memoQ remembers the last used target languages, and suggest them, if you have not specified them in the template.

for LiveDocs: no configuration.

for Translation Memories: no configuration.

for Term bases: no configuration.

for Muses: no configuration.

for Settings: since no source language is specified, no settings are selected. You need to configure a source language to make settings selections. For the language independent settings, the default settings are used.

for People: no configuration. Add users to the template for automatic user assignment after project creation.

for automatic actions: there are pre-defined automated actions.

After document import:

oCreate analysis report (settings: Use Project TMs and corpora, word count: memoQ)

oPre-translate (settings: Good match, TM-driven segmentation, Homogeneity, Project TMs and Corpora, Details by source, word count: memoQ, no segment locking)

oAuto-assign documents to users (Assign to suitable translator or reviewer if possible option is the default in the Auto-assign new documents section) (settings: Start of business in this number of weekdays: for Translator: 1, for Reviewer 1: 2, for Reviewer 2: 3, use weighted word counts if available, for Translator: 2000, for Reviewer 1: 4000, for Reviewer 2: 4000)

After document reimport:

oX-translate (settings: running project)

oCreate analysis report (Calculate analysis when content changes is enabled by default) (settings: Use Project TMs and corpora, word count: memoQ)

oPre-translate (settings: Good match, TM-driven segmentation, Homogeneity, Project TMs and Corpora, Details by source, word count: memoQ, no segment locking)

Document is removed:

oRun post-translation analysis (word count: memoQ)

Note: The template does not contain the Progress report creation because the progress report creation is a mandatory part of the content connector synchronization; memoQ sends back this report to the content connector at the end of the synchronization.

Template wins over content source: In a content source, you can set up document filter configurations for the various different documents in the source folders. However, if the template also contains filter configurations, memoQ will use the ones from the template, and not from the content connector.

Steps to create a content-connected project from a template:

As a first step, you need to set up the content connector service on a computer within the network reach of your memoQ server. You can install the content connector service on the memoQ server itself. The following description assumes that you are installing the content connector service on your memoQ server.

1.Download and install the memoQ content connector service on your memoQ server. For instructions to install the content connector service, see the help pages for the memoQ content connector.

2.Log on to the memoQ server using Remote desktop or any other screen sharing service, start the memoQ content connector client program, and set up a connection for the folder you want to watch. For more instructions, see the How-to page in the memoQ content connector help.

Note: You can install the memoQ content connector client program on any computer that can reach the memoQ server over the network. However, you need to install the content connector service on that computer, too. If this is the case, you can start the memoQ content connector client program on your computer, and access the content connector service over the network.

Important: Do not forget to note down the authorization ID that identifies the connection. You will need it when you set up the online project to use that connection to watch the folder.

3.Start memoQ on your computer, and select your memoQ server in the Dashboard. Click Select to display the list of online projects on the server.

Note: You can also perform this operation from the Manage projects dialog. On the Project ribbon tab, choose Manage projects. When the Manage projects dialog appears, select your server, and start creating the online project.

4.Under the list of projects, click the Create online project from template link. The Create new project from template wizard starts.

5.In the first page of the wizard, choose the Content connector radio button. If the Content provider address field is not filled in, enter the location of your content connector. If required, enter an authentication ID in the Authentication ID field. Then click the Connect button. In the Connections list, you will now see a list of content connectors. Choose a connection, then click Next >.

6.In the next step, choose the Content Connector project template from the Project template drop-down list. You can click the Review settings link to review the template settings.

7.Click Finish to finish the project creation.

8.When the project opens (or you open it manually from the Dashboard), click the Get changes from source command to import your documents from the content source.

Note: You cannot connect a content-connected project to Language Terminal.

Projects created from templates with Content Connectors work like this:

The Content Connector only does import/export documents, no built-in automation.

automation comes from the project template alone.

If you turn off the autopilot, Content Connector document import/export and automations continue to run.


Import filter handling

In templates, you define the filter configurations for the files to be imported. In a content-connected project, it behaves the following:

If you defined a filter in the template, then this filter configuration is used even if there is a filter defined in the Content Connector filter dialog, i.e. the template filter overrides the defined Content Connector filter.

If you did not define a filter in the template, but there is a filter in the Content Connector, then the Content Connector filter is used.

If you did not define a filter in either the template nor the Content Connector, the file uses the default memoQ import filter, or if there is no such filter (e.g. for *.rc files), then the file is skipped on import.

If your project is not template based, the filter in the Content Connector is used. If there is no filter, the default import filter is used. If there is no default import filter, then the file is skipped on import.
