Auto-propagation ensures that the translation of repeated segments is consistent. When it works, memoQ always checks if the segment you translate and confirm is a repetition. If it is a repetition, memoQ automatically inserts the same translation in every repeated segment in the rest of the current document or view. After you turn on auto-propagation, it's automatic.

Auto-propagation is dangerous: Before you turn on auto-propagation, make sure that repeated segments don't need different translation in different contexts.

How to get here

Open a document for translation. On the Translation ribbon, click Translation Settings. From the menu, choose Auto-propagation.


What can you do?

Turn on auto-propagation: Check the Allow auto-propagation check box.

After you turn it on, auto-propagation will always work when you confirm a repeated segment, in every project, in every document. If you no longer need auto-propagation, open a document for translation, and turn it off in the Auto-propagation settings window.

Set the direction of auto-propagation

Choose if memoQ should overwrite existing translations

Choose new status for propagated segments

Auto-propagation settings work for all of memoQ: memoQ uses the same settings in every project and in every document. If you need to change these options, open any document from any project, and change the settings in the Auto-propagation settings window.

When you finish

Click OK to accept the settings.

To return to your translation without changing the settings: Click Cancel.
