Antidote Corrector

Antidote is a popular language proofing tool for English and French. From memoQ 9.1, memoQ is integrated with Antidote Corrector: you can use the Corrector to check and correct your translation even while you are working in memoQ.

You need to buy Antidote: it is a separate product, not built into memoQ.

How to get here

  1. Buy, download, install, and activate the latest version of Antidote. memoQ uses version 2.0 of the Antidote API. This means you can use Antidote Corrector 9.5 or newer with memoQ.
  2. Start memoQ.
  3. Open or create a project where English or French is a target language (sublanguages, for example English (UK) or French (Algeria), are good, too).
  4. Open a document for translation. The Antidote Corrector icon is now visible on the Translation ribbon:
  5. Click the button. Antidote's main window opens:

Using Antidote Corrector with memoQ

When you open Antidote Corrector from memoQ, Antidote's main window shows all the visible target segments from the currently open document or view. That is, if a filter is active, segments outside the filter will not appear in Antidote. If you edit a segment in either memoQ or Antidote, the translation will change in the other window, too.

If you split a segment in memoQ, one of the rows will disappear from Antidote Corrector. This is a known bug in Antidote's API, and will be fixed in an upcoming version.

If your project has more than one document, you can open a separate Antidote window for each. If you switch to another Antidote window, memoQ switches to the document or view belonging to that window.

Antidote Corrector does not show tags or formatting. If, in the Antidote window, you edit text which is formatted in memoQ, the changes will be formatted in memoQ, too. If only a part of the text that you're editing is formatted, memoQ tries to find out if the changes should be formatted. If you edit text which has a tag in memoQ, the tag will appear after the edited section of text in memoQ.

Antidote Corrector also does not show change tracking. If you (or your project manager) turned on Track Changes in memoQ, and you edit text in Antidote, the changes will appear as tracked changes in memoQ.

When you finish
