Create new stop word list

When you are extracting potential terms from documents, you want to exclude some words from the terms. For example, you don't want a term to start with 'of', or end in 'the'.

Words that mustn't occur in potential terms or that shouldn't be terms at all are called stop words.

The term extraction command in memoQ uses stop word list to filter the potential terms, so that you receive less noise in the list that memoQ gives you.

To learn more about term extraction and stop word lists, see the topic about editing stop word lists.

You choose a stop word list in the Extract candidates window. You can also edit the stop word list there.

This command creates a new empty stop word list. After this, you must edit it to add stop words.

Language does matter: A stop word list belongs to a language. memoQ can use a stop word list if its main language is the same as the source language of the project.

How to get here

Open the Resource Console. Choose Stop word lists. Under the list, click Create new.

From the Extract candidates window: Open a project. Open the Extract candidates window. In the Stop word list drop-down box, choose <new stop word list>. Click Save as.
