When you extract terms from the source documents, translation memories or LiveDocs corpora in your project, memoQ displays the candidate list in a candidate list editor tab. In this tab, you can clean up, filter, edit, and reconfigure the candidate list. You can also confirm candidates that will be added to a term base created from the candidate list.

In the candidate list editor, memoQ shows the list of term candidates that belong to a term extraction session. This list is saved in a project.


How to begin

On the Preparation ribbon tab, choose Extract Terms.

If you have not previously performed term extraction in the current project, memoQ displays the Extract candidates dialog. Adjust the options for term extraction, and click OK. memoQ extracts terms from the selected document, translation memories, or LiveDocs corpora, and displays the candidate list in the candidate list editor tab.

If you have previously extracted terms in the current project, memoQ displays the Extract terms dialog, where you can choose an existing session, or start a new session. If you choose to work with an existing session, memoQ loads the candidate list, and displays it in the candidate list editor. If you choose to start a new session, memoQ displays the Extract candidates dialog where you can adjust options for term extraction again.
