An ignore list is a collection of words that the spelling checker must accept. These are words that the spelling checker doesn't normally recognize.
In the translation editor, you can add words to an ignore list while you are running the spelling checker. Or, you can edit an ignore list from the Resource console.
This command creates a new empty ignore list. After this, you must edit it to add the word pairs. Or, you can open Spell checking from the translation editor, and add words as you run the spelling checker.
Language does matter: An ignore list always belongs to a language. memoQ can use an ignore list if its main language is the same as the target language of the project.
How to get here
Open the Resource Console. Choose Ignore lists. Under the list, click Create new.
From the translation editor: Open a project, and open a document for translation. On the Translation ribbon, click Spell Checking. In the Spell checking window, click the Ignore lists tab. Click New.
If My Computer is selected in Resource Console
If a memoQ server is selected in Resource Console (even if you come from the Spell checking window)
What can you do?
Choose a place for the ignore list (if a server is selected in the Resource Console)
If you come from the Resource Console, and a memoQ server was selected at the top: You can choose to create the ignore list on your own computer; or to create it on the server.
To make your choice: Click the My computer or the Remote radio button.
You cannot choose another server here. To create the ignore list on another server: Close this window. Choose the other server at the top of the Resource Console. Click Create new again.
Give a name, a language, and a description to the ignore list
1.Type a name in the Name box. The name must be unique on your computer - or on the server where you're creating it.
2.In the Language box, choose a language for the ignore list. memoQ can use an ignore list if its main language is the same as the target language of the project. If you are creating the ignore list from the translation editor, but you choose a different language, you may create an ignore list that you can't use in the current project.
3.Describe the purpose of the ignore list in the Description box. Never leave it empty: think of the other people who may need to use this ignore list, too.
4.To protect the ignore list against accidental changes: Check the Read-only check box. memoQ won't let anyone make changes to it - until you clear the Read-only check box in the Properties window for the ignore list.
When you finish
To create the ignore list: Click OK.
To return to the Resource Console or to the Spell checking window, and not create an ignore list: Click Cancel.
Empty list: The ignore list you create is empty. You need to edit it to set up patterns and conversions.
