In the Terminology plugins pane of the Options window, you can start (or stop) using external terminology portals. When you are connected to an external terminology portal, memoQ will get terminology suggestions from these. These suggestions will look like hits from a term base.

No need to come here for term bases on Language Terminal: If you have term bases on Language Terminal, or other members of Language Terminal shared term bases with you, you can use them directly from the Term bases pane of Project home. You do not have to set up Language Terminal as an external terminology source.

How to get here

1.Open the Options window: At the very top of the memoQ window - in the Quick Access toolbar quick-access-default -, click the Options (cogwheels) quick-access-options icon. The Options window opens.

2.Under Category, click Terminology plugins. The Terminology plugins pane appears.


What can you do?

Turn on external terminology sources: Normally, memoQ does not use external terminology portals. To start using them, check the Perform terminology plugin lookups while working in the translation grid check box.

For EuroTermBank and TaaS, you do not have to specify your user name or password. Both can be used anonymously. Once you turn on external terminology sources, both are ready to use.

For Wordfast TB, you have to specify a server address, your user name and your password.

To turn off an external terminology source: Next to the icon of the source, clear the Enable plugin check box.

To configure an external terminology source: Next to the icon of the source, click Options.

EuroTermBank was superseded by TaaS (Tilde Terminology): It is recommended to turn off the EuroTermBank plugin.

To learn more about configuring TaaS (Tilde Terminology): Next to the TaaS icon, click Options. Although you can use this system without registering, it is recommended to register your profile because then you can use the term extraction and terminology editing features of Tilde Terminology.
