memoQ can check many things in the translation automatically. In memoQ, the automatic checks are called quality assurance checks.

A QA option set tells memoQ what to check and how. For example, you can choose to check terminology, consistency, length. Or, you can simply check the inline tags only.

To learn more about the various settings, see the topic about editing QA options.

Don't mix QA with LQA: memoQ also knows about Linguistic Quality Assurance. This is a way of adding human feedback to documents. The human reviewers can structure and formalize their feedback, and grade the translations if necessary. You use the LQA options - LQA models - to enter these and report about them.
