Document import options
The Document import options dialog allows you to specify and change the document import filter, set a configuration and choose an action. You can also define in which language the documents should be imported too in a multilingual project.
How to begin
In Project home, navigate to the Translations pane, go to the Project ribbon tab, choose Import > Import, Import with options or Import folder structure. The Document import options dialog appears:
In the Documents section, a document list appears. The list contains the following details:
•File name: This column shows the file name. If you check the Show full path for files check box, the full file path is shown here.
•Extension: This column shows the file extension.
•Filter: Here you can choose a file filter from the drop-down list for each document. memoQ selects a default file filter from the file extension. For example, memoQ offers to use the XML filter automatically if the file extension is .xml.
•Configuration: Here you can choose from the drop-down list a saved configuration setting, or use the Default configuration.
memoQ can sometimes choose a configuration automatically: For example, if the document is XML, and there is a configuration where the root element is the same as in the document, memoQ will choose that configuration instead of the default one.
•Action: Here you can choose the document import action: to import as new, to reimport or to update existing documents.
In the Details for selected items box, you find information for the selected documents.
Below this text box, you have the following options:
•Change filter and configuration: Click this command link to open the Document import settings dialog. Here you can specify the filter for the document import as well as save the filter configuration.
•Change filter and configuration for all: Click this command link to open the Document import settings dialog. Here you can specify the filter for the document import as batch for several document types.
•Remove: Click this command link to remove selected documents from the documents list.
•Change action: Click this command link to change an action for selected documents. The Select action dialog appears where you can select the action you want to perform. Click OK to select the action. Click Cancel to discard the selection.
•Languages: Click this command link to select the target language(s) you want to import the documents to. The Select languages dialog appears:
Here you can select from the Available languages (the target languages you defined for the project). Use the arrows to move the languages from the Available languages box to the Target languages box. Click OK to confirm the document import for these target languages. Click Cancel to discard the selection.
Note: The Languages command link is not available if you only have one target language.
Depending on the import action you want to perform, you have more options available:
•New documents section: Check the Create preview check box to import the documents with a preview. Check the Record version history check box to import the documents with versioning. Both options are checked by default.
•Import embedded objects check box: Check this check box to import embedded objects like Visio graphics or Excel files embedded in a DOCX file.
•Import embedded images check box: Check this check box to import images that have translatable text. memoQ will extract these texts and imports them as separate file.
The following options are only visible when you import this file format:
•Bilingual RTF update section: Check the Do not update if source segment is different check box to prevent the update when a source segment is a different one from the one in the already imported document.
•Two-column RTF update section: Check the Tags must have mqinternal style check box to define the Tags as mqinternal style. If there is no mqinternal style, a yellow triangle warning icon is displayed for the document in the first row of the Documents list. Check the Do not update if source segment is different check box to prevent the update when a source segment is a different one from the one in the already imported document.
•Bilingual XLIFF section: Check the Use received segmentation if possible check box to use the documents segmentation.
Note: If you choose the Import as new action for documents, no further sections are shown. If you choose the Update action for documents, these sections are shown. If you choose Reimport, these sections are not shown either.
Click OK to start importing the selected files. Click Cancel to close the dialog without importing documents.
