When you are extracting potential terms from documents, you want to exclude some words from the terms. For example, you don't want a term to start with 'of', or end in 'the'. Words that mustn't occur in potential terms or that shouldn't be terms at all are called stop words.

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 Stop word lists. The Stop word lists pane appears.
