Import TIPP package
The TIPP package format is part of the Interoperability Now! initiative. It aspires to make it easier to pass projects and assignment packages among different translation tools. TIPP also has the objective to make resources and other settings interoperable among tools.
memoQ is part of the Interoperability Now! initiative, and has full support for TIPP packages and XLIFF:doc documents.
Can't create TIPP package: currently, memoQ cannot generate a TIPP package. It can import TIPP packages and export response packages.
From a TIPP package, you can create a local project only.
How to get here
1.Save the TIPP package file to your Documents folder. (Or, use any other folder that you can easily open.)
2.On the Project ribbon, click Import package.
3.An Open window appears. Find the folder where the package file is, and double-click the file. The Import TIPP package wizard starts.
What can you do?
Import the TIPP package in a local project.
To create the project: On the second wizard page, click Finish.
When you finish
To return to the Dashboard, and not import the package: On any of the pages, click Cancel.
After the translation is finished: Export response package
When the translation is finished, you need to export a return package.
1.Open the project that you imported from the TIPP package.
3.Select any of the documents.
4.On the Documents ribbon, click Export. Or, click the down arrow below the Export icon. From the menu, choose Export (Stored path). memoQ exports the TIPP response package.
To export individual XLIFF:doc files: Select the documents you want to export. On the Documents ribbon, click the down arrow below the Export icon. From the menu, choose Export (Dialog).

TIPP features and settings supported by memoQ
memoQ supports the standard TIPP task type only: Translate-Strict Bitext. In a TIPP request of this task type, documents are stored in the XLIFF:doc format.
Supported and unsupported features
XLIFF:doc import settings
XLIFF:doc is the XLIFF flavor used in TIPP packages.
When you import a TIPP package, the translatable files are in XLIFF:doc format. When the XLIFF:doc file contains an HTML preview, then you have a translation preview in memoQ.
Note: memoQ does not support the splitting and joining of segments in XLIFF:doc files.
Note: When a XLIFF:doc file contains several files, then they are imported as individual documents. These individual translation documents in memoQ are exported back into one single XLIFF:doc file.
XLIFF:doc features supported by memoQ
memoQ supports the majority fo XLIFF:doc features. The following table gives an overview of supported features in memoQ:
Import mapping defaults
When you import XLIFF:doc files from the TIPP package, the files have XLIFF:doc segment status which are mapped to memoQ status as in the table below:
Export mapping defaults
When you export XLIFF:doc files from memoQ, the segment status are as the following in the exported XLIFF:doc files:
