A TM settings profile tells memoQ how to get matches from translation memory. 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 inadequate. For these cases, you use penalties - so that the match rate will be lower than memoQ originally computed.

To learn more about penalties, see the topic about editing TM settings.

Belongs to a project, not to a translation memory: You choose a TM settings profile for a project, not for a translation memory. If you choose a TM settings profile for a project, memoQ uses them for all translation memories in the project. Then again, in a different project, you can use different TM settings for the same translation memories.

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 TM settings. The TM settings pane appears.
