You can publish a local project on a memoQ server at any point. The project does not have to be fully configured.

In the following steps, we will publish a local project that contains one or more documents that are assigned to user names in the Translator role. The project also contains one local translation memory and one local term base.

1.Open the project in your copy of memoQ.

2.Click the Overview icon. The Overview pane appears.

Tip: Under Handoff checks, you might want to click the Check project now command. This will check if all documents are assigned to a user in each role. It is recommended to assign each document to a translator at least before publishing the project.

3.In the Overview pane, click the Handoff/delivery tab, and then click the Publish current project on a server command.

The Publish project wizard starts.

4.In the first dialog, type the address of your memoQ server in the Server URL box. memoQ remembers the servers that you used in the past, and the most recently used server  address automatically appears in this box. After you type or choose the server address, click Select next to the Server URL box.

memoQ connects to the server. If you have not connected to the server before, memoQ prompts you for a user name and a password. Specify a user name and a password that is a member of the Administrators or the Project managers group on the server.

5.Still in the first dialog, choose a name for the project as it will be published on the memoQ server. By default, the name is the same as the name of your local project.

6.Then, under Documents are..., choose how you want to manage the documents in the online project, and then click Next.

7.In the second dialog of the Publish project wizard, you need to match the user names in your local project to the user names that exist on the memoQ server. This is necessary because in a local project, you do not choose users from a memoQ server: you can type any name next to a document.

For each 'local' user name in your original project, memoQ displays a drop-down list where you can choose from users on the memoQ server.

Note: If there is a user on the memoQ server with the same name as a local user, the wizard automatically selects that user in the corresponding drop-down box.

Tip: You can also create new users on the server from this wizard page: click the Create new user link next to the Back button. The User properties dialog appears where you can enter the details of the user. When you create a new user, it will automatically be selected in the drop-down list in the highlighted row.

8.After you finish matching local users to server users, click Next.

9.In the third dialog of the wizard, memoQ offers to upload and publish any LiveDocs corpora, translation memories, or term bases that are included in the local project. Resources that you choose to upload and publish will be attached to the online project as well. Resources that you do not choose to publish will not be available in the online project.

Click the check box next to each LiveDocs corpus, translation memory, or term base that you want to upload and publish, then click Next.

Tip: If you included remote resources in your local project (from the same memoQ server or other memoQ servers), they will remain available in the published online project as well.

10.In the fourth dialog of the wizard (Checkout options), you can control what team members can do with documents they check out along with this project. The options are essentially the same as with handoff packages.

11.After reviewing – and, eventually, changing – these options, click Finish.

memoQ uploads the project to the server. From this point on, the project is available on the list of projects on your memoQ server. You can manage the online copy of the project from the Manage projects dialog.

Important: After you publish a local project on the server, the local project and the new online project are entirely independent from each other. memoQ does not synchronize the changes in the local project to the online project on the server -- they are not connected by any means. You need to manage the new online project separately.

12. On the Project ribbon tab, choose Manage projects. The Manage projects dialog appears.

13.In the Server URL box, select or type the address of your memoQ server. This will be the server where you create the project.

14.The new online project is listed in the Manage projects dialog. Click the name of the project, then click the Manage command below the list. The memoQ online project dialog appears. This dialog looks essentially the same as the Project home tab in a local project – but every change you make to the project happens on the server. In the case of larger changes, memoQ will wait for you to confirm the changes – and then it applies the changes on the server.

15.Finish setting up your project in the memoQ online project dialog. For more details on this, see Steps 2, 3, 4, in the topic Create a new online project.
