A Muse is a resource – a statistical database – that offers hints for predictive typing.

A Muse guesses the next work or expression, computing from the source text and the translation that was already typed. In a way, the Muse is similar to a statistical machine translation module, but it can be more precise - because it does not have to guess an entire sentence, just the next few words.

In an online project, you manage muses in the Muses pane of the memoQ online project window. This is where you come to set up and train Muses.

A Muse is bilingual: In a project, you can use a Muse if it has the same source language as your project, and its target language is also a target language in your project.

How to get here

First, open an online project for management:

1.On the project management dashboard, locate the project you need to manage. Search for the project if necessary.

2.Click the name of the project.

3.On the Project ribbon, click Manage. A new memoQ online project window opens. In most cases, the Translations pane appears automatically.

4.Make sure the project is not on autopilot. If it is, you can turn it off. Before you do, check if the project will continue to run smoothly after you turn off the autopilot. To turn off the autopilot: On the Online Project ribbon, click Turn off autopilot. The Turn off autopilot window opens. Do not turn off automated actions.

Then, choose Muses:

5.On the left, click the Muses icon. The Muses pane appears.
