Displays automatic Lookup and Insertion dialog.


Segment section:

Edit Source: Under normal circumstances, you are not allowed to modify source segments. This command lets you edit the source segment. This may be useful when you need to correct a typo or mistake in the source segment that is not likely to repeat, in order to have the correct source segment stored in the translation memory. To use this command, first position the cursor in the source text. Default shortcut key: F2.

Revert Source: Restores the original text of the current source segment. Use this command to undo the changes you made to a source segment. To use this command, first position the cursor in the source cell.

Lock/Unlock: Locks the selected segments if at least one of them is not locked. Unlocks the selected segments if all of them are locked. Default shortcut key: Ctrl+Shift+L.


Translation Hits section:

Insert Selected Hit: Click this arrow for the following options:

oCurrent hit: Inserts the hit highlighted in the Translation results pane into the target segment at the current cursor position. Default shortcut key: Ctrl+Space.

oAssembled Hit: Inserts the translation result assembled from fragments. This command is available only if there is any hit in the Translation results pane that was assembled from fragments. Default shortcut key: F4.

oInsert Next Auto-Translation: Inserts the next auto-translation rule.

Change Current Hit: Displays a submenu with commands to manipulate the selected hit in the Translation results pane:

oView/Edit: Opens the editing dialog for the translation memory or term base entry selected in the hit list. Default shortcut key: Ctrl+Alt+Enter.

oDelete Source Alternative: Deletes the source term or the entire translation memory entry.

oDelete Target Alternative: Deletes the target term or target segment from the entry shown by the currently selected hit.

oAdd Selection as Alternative: Adds the selected target text as another alternative term or translation to the entry shown by the currently selected hit.

Scan Segment: If automatic lookups are not enabled, you need to manually scan segments for hits in translation memories, term bases, and other resources. Use this command to scan for hits that will be displayed in the Translation results pane. Default shortcut key: F3.


Search section:

Concordance: Displays the Concordance dialog to find all translation memory entries that contain the expression you are looking for. This command is available when the cursor is in the source segment and some text is selected. Default shortcut key: Ctrl+K.

Look Up Term: Displays the Look up term dialog to find all term base entries which contain the expression you are looking for. Default shortcut key: Ctrl+P.

Store section:

Confirm: Click the lower part of the Confirm icon to display the confirm options. If you click the upper part of the icon, the Confirm operation is performed automatically with the selected role.

oConfirm: Stores the source segment and the target segment in the working translation memory used in the active project, and sets the confirmation status to Translator confirmed, Reviewer 1 confirmed or Reviewer 2 confirmed - depending on your confirm settings (your role in the project, or by choosing a role before confirming the segments to the TM). As this is the most usual operation, it is advised to always use the shortcut key instead. You cannot use this command if your project uses no translation memory. Default shortcut key: Ctrl+Enter.

oConfirm Without Update: Set the status of the current segment to Translator confirmed, without storing the source segment and the target segment in the primary translation memory.  The only way to confirm a segment if you do not use a translation memory. Default shortcut key: Ctrl+Shift+Enter.

Quick Add Term: Uses the selected text in the source cell and the target cell to add a new entry to the highest ranked term base of the active project. Before you can use this command, you need to select a phrase both in the source and the target cells. If you have changed the selected term bases using Add Term, memoQ adds the term to the selected term bases. Default shortcut key: Ctrl+Q.

Add Non-Translatable: Displays the Edit non-translatable list dialog to add items to the default non-translatable list in the active project.
