At first, it shows a formatted preview of the translation.
When you translate a segment in the Grid, the translated text will replace the source text in the View pane, too.
In the preview, the current segment is highlighted with a red border.
You can move around in the translation by clicking in the preview: If you click somewhere else in the preview, the Grid will jump there, too.
To find text in the preview: Click anywhere in the View pane. Press Ctrl+F. In the Find box, type the words to look for. memoQ will highlight the matches, and jump to the first one. You can jump to the second, third, etc. match by clicking Next. The window stays open, so that you can jump and look for other words, too.
The preview is similar to the original document, but it will not be identical: memoQ uses various applications to turn every document into a web page. Sometimes a web page cannot look the same as the finished document. The formatting may be similar, but never identical.
Preview works for these document formats: Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, HTML, XML (through XSLT style sheets, too), multilingual Excel, text, and XML, and - through Language Terminal - InDesign.
Preview is not guaranteed: memoQ may be unable to offer a preview for certain document formats or certain documents. To produce a preview, memoQ uses external programs and parts of the operating system. This may fail at times, even if memoQ itself is in perfect working order.
Preview may show structure, not formatting: The preview of XML documents, XML-based documents, and multilingual tables shows the structure of the document, not the formatting. This is normal.
