Select filter to chain
You can import documents where the text contains further markup.
Example: An Excel workbook where the cells contain HTML code. That is, parts of web pages instead of just plain text. memoQ needs the Excel filter to import this document; but then it needs read the cells through the HTML filter - instead of just offering the contents for translation. The result: Instead of HTML gibberish, the translation editor will show sensible inline tags.
This is called a filter chain or a cascading filter. In the Select filter to chain window, you can add a second, third, fourth, etc. filter to read the structure inside the structure.
How to get here
Import documents with options:
Open a project, and in Project home, choose Translations. On the Documents ribbon, click Import With Options. In the Document import options window, click Change filter and configuration or Change filter and configuration for all. The Document import settings window appears. In the Document import settings window, click Add cascading filter....
Works in online projects: You can use a filter chain when you import documents into a memoQ online project, too.
What can you do?
1.Choose a main document type: In the Filter drop-down box, choose a main filter. Choose one that matches the text that was imported by the first filter. In most cases, you will use one of these: XML filter, HTML filter, or the Regex tagger.
2.Choose a particular Filter configuration: In this drop-down box, choose a filter configuration that has the details of the document structure. You can choose from configurations that belong to the main document type. After you add the filter to the chain, you can fine-tune the settings in the Document import settings window.
When you finish
Click OK: memoQ adds the new filter to the filter chain, and return to the Document import settings window.
Click Cancel: memoQ won't add the filter to the chain. It just returns to the Document import settings window.
