A Muse is a resource – a statistical database – that offers hints for predictive typing.
A Muse guesses the next work or expression, computing from the source text and the translation that was already typed. In a way, the Muse is similar to a statistical machine translation module, but it can be more precise - because it does not have to guess an entire sentence, just the next few words.
How to get here
Open the Resource Console. Choose Muses. Under the list, click Create new.
If My Computer is selected in Resource Console or at the top of the memoQ window
What can you do?
- Type a name in the Name box. The name must be unique on your computer - or on the server where you're creating it.
- In the Source language and the Target language drop-down boxes, choose the languages of the Muse.
- Describe the future contents of the Muse in the Description box. Never leave it empty: think of other people who may need to use this Muse.
- To protect the Muse against accidental changes: Check the Read-only check box. memoQ won't let anyone make changes to it - until you clear the Read-only check box in the Properties window for the Muse.
When you finish
To create the Muse: Click OK.
After you click OK, the Train Muse window opens automatically. Choose translation memories and LiveDocs corpora: memoQ will use the contents of these to compute the statistics in the Muse. Click OK. The Muse is created when the training finishes.
