When memoQ imports a document, it splits the document into segments. Normally, a segment is more or less the same as a sentence. But you can use completely different segments, too.

A segmentation rule set tells memoQ how to split a document into segments.

The Segmentation rules tab of the Settings pane lists the segmentation rule sets for the source language of the project. You can choose one to use with the project.

Choose segmentation rules before you import documents: When memoQ imports a document, it uses the segmentation rule set that is already in the project. You can't "re-segment" a document when you change the segmentation rules.

Requires memoQ project manager: You need the project manager edition of memoQ to manage online projects.

You need to be a project manager or an administrator: You may manage online projects only if you are member of the Project managers or Administrators group on the memoQ server, or else you were granted the Project manager role in the project.

How to get here

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.
