The Translations pane is a central part of your work in memoQ. This is where you see a list of your documents, and get an overview of how much has been done and how much work is still left.

This page is about the Translations pane in memoQ translator pro. To learn about the Translations pane in the project manager edition, see this Help page.

Normally, some documents will already be here when you first open your project in Project home. This is because you are supposed to add documents on the Dashboard or in the Create new project from template window. Still, you can add new documents here, or delete or replace existing ones.

To translate or review a document in memoQ:

1.In the Translations pane, import the document.

2.Run preparations: pre-translation, analysis, maybe X-translation after you reimport a document from a new version.

Preparation steps may be automatic: If the project was created from a template, pre-translation and analysis usually runs automatically after a document is imported. To see the settings of the template: Go to the Overview pane, and click the Template settings tab.

3.Open the document for translation, and work on it in the translation editor.

4.When you finish working on the document, you can export the translation from the list.

Normally, the Translations pane gives you a simple list of documents. Even in that list, you find detailed information on the document status, the progress, and the document versions. You can switch the list to Structure mode. In the Structure mode, documents are grouped by target language and folder (if complete folders were imported).

You can filter the list for documents that you need to see. For example, you can look at documents that have a specific word in their names. Or, you can sort the list by name or size. Choose this from the Sort by drop-down box.

How to get here

1.From the Dashboard, create or open a project. Or, check out a project from a memoQ server.

2.Under Project home, click Translations. The Translations pane appears.
