Edit term base entry

While you're translating a document, memoQ looks up terms in the term bases of the project. When memoQ finds a term in the current segment, it appears on the Translation results list.

You can edit the entry in the term base directly from the Translation results list. If the term base is on a memoQ TMS, you must have modify permission over it.

How to get here

  1. Open a project.
  2. From Project home, open a document for translation.
  3. In the translation editor, start working on a segment.
  4. On the Translation results list, memoQ displays the terms it finds. Right-click a term that you want to edit and choose View/Edit form the menu.

    Translation results window with View/Edit option selected.

The Edit term base entry window opens:

Term base pop-up window allowing to add and edit entries for selected language pair.

On some computers, the Edit term base entry window may open in a compact view:
