Documents to be translated are usually formatted in some way – they have a specific layout complete with headings and subheadings, tabs, paragraphs, fonts, highlights, etc. When the document is imported into memoQ, formatting information is separated from the actual text, and the text is devided into segments. More often than not, the translator is required to submit the translation in the format of the source document, so text and formatting should be together again at the end of the project. How can you ensure this kind of integrity? It depends on the type of formatting.

There are three types of formatting that may occur in a document

basic formatting (bold, italics and underlined)

other formatting (whitespace, different font, different font size or color, inline images, line breaks, tabulators, etc.)
