memoQ's LiveDocs technology allows you to reuse existing translations without going through a translation memory. You can also use it to add background material to the project. In the LiveDocs pane of Project home, you can manage LiveDocs corpora and the documents inside them.

LiveDocs corpora work with all languages: An empty LiveDocs corpora has no languages. You can add documents and document pairs of any language. A LiveDocs corpus offers matches in all the languages of the documents in it.

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. The LiveDocs pane appears.
