Documents created in Microsoft® Word® 2003 or earlier (*.doc extension)

When importing and exporting DOC files, memoQ uses interoperability features of Microsoft® Office®. At import, memoQ instructs Word® to convert the file into RTF format, which can be read directly by memoQ. If you do not have MS Office installed on your computer, you need to use the Aspose option to import DOC files.

When a DOC file is imported, the translation document in memoQ will contain uninterpreted formatting tags (of the form {1}, {2}, etc.) These tags are not reorder able. All the tags from the source side must be present in the translation to avoid errors that prevent export. This limitation does not apply to DOCX files.

Note: In some cases, the conversion into RTF format that is performed at import can introduce changes to the layout of the document. These changes are introduced by Microsoft® Office®. To avoid this, it is recommended that you work with the newer DOCX format instead.

Documents created in Microsoft® Office Word® 2007, Microsoft® Office Word® 2010, or higher (*.docx extension)

Microsoft® Office® 2007 introduced the new XML based DOCX format that can be imported and exported directly by memoQ. Import and export works even on machines without Office®, Aspose is used instead.

In the case of DOCX, you can choose to have inline tags or uninterpreted formatting tags in your translation document. Unlike uninterpreted formatting tags, inline tags can be reordered, or, if not needed, omitted from the translation.

Note: Although memoQ supports DOCX files created in Microsoft Office Word 2010 or higher, memoQ does not import text that is included in the form of extensions specific to Office 2010 or higher. However, because translatable text very rarely occurs in such extensions, you can expect memoQ to process Word 2010 or higher DOCX files properly.

Rich Text Format (*.rtf extension)

RTF is an older word processing document format created by Microsoft® that is widely supported by word processing applications. If you do not use Microsoft® Word®, it is recommended that you save your documents in RTF format before translating in memoQ.
