LiveDocs pane

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.

Use local and online LiveDocs corpora: In Project home, you can use LiveDocs corpora from your own computer, as well as LiveDocs corpora from memoQ servers that you have access to.

How to get here

  1. From the Dashboard, create or open a project. Or, check out a project from a memoQ server.
  2. Under Project home, click LiveDocs. The LiveDocs pane appears.

What can you do?

If the project is a checkout of an online project: If you check out an online project, it may use LiveDocs corpora from the same server where the online project is. In this case, you get permissions for the LiveDocs corpora with the project, or because you were assigned tasks in the project.

When you finish

To return to your work: Click a document tab at the top of the memoQ window (in the same row as the Project home tab). In most cases, you will return to the translation editor.

To close the project: Click the Close icon in the Project home tab: Or, on the Project ribbon, click Close Project.

You can close memoQ, too, if you do not need to work on another project.

You can start creating another project: If you do that, memoQ will automatically close your current project.

Project managers, you can switch windows: You can open several online projects for management. Each online project opens in a separate window. To switch between them and the Dashboard or Project home (if you have a local project open): Press and hold down Alt, and press Tab a few times until you get to the window you want. Or: On the Windows taskbar, click the memoQ icon, and then click the window you want to switch to.
