A LiveDocs settings profile tells memoQ how to get matches from LiveDocs corpora. This means two things:

Match thresholds. These are two numbers: One of them sets the minimum match rate of any match that memoQ shows. The other tells memoQ what counts as a good match. (You can pre-translate documents with good matches or better. That's where memoQ uses this second number.)

Penalties: A match is not always reliable. The match rate is supposed to tell how much you need to work on the translation you got. But it can actually be worse if the translation is bad, or - in the case of LiveDocs - comes from an aligned document pair, and there is a misalignment. For these cases, you use penalties - so that the match rate will be lower than memoQ originally computed.

Using alignment? You may need to look at penalties: If at least one of your LiveDocs corpora contains aligned document pairs, you may need to check the penalties. Otherwise, you may not receive matches from that LiveDocs corpus when you pre-translate your project for good matches.

To learn more about penalties: See Help about editing LiveDocs settings.

You cannot edit the default LiveDocs settings. Either you need to make a copy of the default LiveDocs settings profile, or you need to create a new one.

Belongs to a project, not to a LiveDocs corpus: You choose a LiveDocs settings profile for a project, not for a LiveDocs corpus. If you choose a LiveDocs settings profile for a project, memoQ uses them for all LiveDocs corpora in the project. Then again, in a different project, you can use different LiveDocs settings for the same LiveDocs corpora.

How to get here

1.At the very top of the memoQ window - in the Quick Access toolbar quick-access-default -, click the Resource console (ring binder) icon-resconsole icon. The Resource console window opens, with the Translation memories pane.

2.Under Resource, click LiveDocs settings. The LiveDocs settings pane appears.

When you finish

To work with another type of resource: Under Resource, choose another category.

To return to your work: Switch to the memoQ main window. Press and hold down Alt, and press Tab, until you get to the memoQ main window. Or, on the Windows taskbar, click the memoQ icon, then click the memoQ main window. The Resource Console stays open.

Or, you can close the Resource Console: Click Close.

If you opened a translation memory, a term base, or a LiveDocs document for editing: Switch to the memoQ main window (or close the Resource console), and then go to the editor tab.
