A translation memory is a database that contains pairs of segments. One of them is in the source language, and the other is the translation in a target language. When you use a translation memory in a project, memoQ will offer matches for the segments you are translating. When there is a segments in the translation memory that is the same or very similar to the segment you are translating, memoQ can offer the stored translation - so that you do not have to translate the segment from scratch.

Translation memories are bilingual: A translation memory has a source language and a target language. Some translation memories are reversible. When you create a translation memory from a project, it will contain the source language and the selected target language of the project. If the project has two or more target languages, you must choose one target language first. If you create a translation memory from Resource Console, you can pick the two languages.

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 Translation memories. The Translation memories pane appears.
