memoQ server can keep a log of actions that change translation memories. On the Audit log for TM pane, you can turn logging on and off, have the log e-mailed to you, and configure when this all happens. You can also export the current log manually.

How to get here

1.At the very top of the memoQ window - in the Quick Access toolbar quick-access-default -, click the Server Administrator (cogwheel in a cloud) icon-server-administrator icon. The Server Administrator window opens, with the Connection pane.

Or: On the Project ribbon, click Server Administrator.

2.Under Category, click Audit log for TM. The Audit log for TM pane appears.


What can you do?

Turn logging on and off: To turn on logging, check the Create audit log for Translation memories check box.

You can choose which actions are logged. Normally, memoQ server will log import and export operations. However, you can choose from the following:

TM entry deletion



Modification of TM permissions

Creation (of translation memory)

Deletion (of translation memory)


Modification of TM properties

You can e-mail the log to yourself. Check the E-mail the audit log of the previous day every day check box. In the Time box, set a time of day. In the E-mail box, type or paste an e-mail address.

You can delete old records automatically: Check the Delete records older than 60 days every month check box. In the Day of the month box, set a day. In the Scheduled time box, set a time of day when the old records are deleted.

Export the log here and now: In the From and Until boxes, choose the first and the last date of the period you want to see. Click Export. A Save As window opens. Find a folder and a name for the exported log.

Delete old records here and now: Choose a date and time; memoQ server will delete every entry before that time. Click Delete.
