Abbreviations are exceptions to segmentation rules. memoQ doesn't break segments after an abbreviation. In this window, you can add a new abbreviation.

If you use your own segmentation rules: make sure they include the default abbreviation lists (#abbr#, #abbr_num#). If the default abbreviation lists aren't there, you cannot use this command.

How to get here

Open a document for translation. Select an abbreviation in the source text. On the Edit ribbon, click Add Abbreviation.


What can you do?

Choose the type of the abbreviation

Re-segment documents after adding the abbreviation

When you finish

Click OK: memoQ adds the abbreviation to the segmentation rules, and changes the segmentation of the active document or all documents in your project.

Click Cancel to close the Add abbreviation window without adding the abbreviation or segmenting your documents.
