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 the memoQ online project window, 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.

Requires memoQ project manager: You need the project manager edition of memoQ to manage online projects.

You need to be a project manager or an administrator: You may manage online projects only if you are member of the Project managers or Administrators group on the memoQ server, or else you were granted the Project manager role in the project.

1.On the project management dashboard, locate the project you need to manage. Search for the project if necessary.

3.On the Project ribbon, click Manage. A new memoQ online project window opens. In most cases, the Translations pane appears automatically.

Then, choose LiveDocs:

4.On the left, click the LiveDocs icon. The LiveDocs pane appears.
