Edit AutoCorrect list

An AutoCorrect list is a collection of word pairs. In the translation editor, when you type the first word in a pair, memoQ replaces it with the second word. You can use this to correct typos automatically, or to type long expressions faster, if those expressions come up often in the translation.

AutoCorrect doesn't belong to a project: If you turn on an AutoCorrect list, it will be active in all your memoQ projects. You can't choose which AutoCorrect lists you want to use in a particular project.

How to get here

What can you do?

In this window, you can add new, edit, or remove word pairs or shorthands from an AutoCorrect list.

  • To add a new word pair to the list: In the Replace field, type a mistyped word (for example: teh). In the With field, type its corrected version (for example: the). Click the Add button.

  • To edit a word pair on the list: Select the word pair, and change the content of the With field as needed. Click the Replace button.

    Edit AutoCorrect list window with list of words and Replace button visible.

    If you change the Replace field to a phrase that's not in the list, the Replace button changes to Add. memoQ will add a new word pair to the list.

  • To delete a word pair from the list: Select the word pair. Click the Delete button.

Why is the With box so much longer? You can use AutoCorrect to create shorthands for repeated expressions. For example, if you translate mathematics, and you need to type Let us suppose that many times, you can add some brief nonsense (like lus) to Replace, and type Let us suppose that in With. Then, if you type lus in the translation editor, and press Space, memoQ expands it to Let us suppose that.
