Export change-tracked document after review (on server)

In an online project, this action compares the reviewer's edits with the translator's work, and creates a review report. The report contains the text where there were changes, as well as statistics about the edits. This is available in online projects only. The report is saved in one HTML file or in several HTML files.

How to get here

  1. Open Resource console. Choose Project templates.

    Online projects only: Use an online template for this. Choose your memoQ server at the top of Resource console. Click Select.

  2. Select the project template where you want to change the workflow status of documents when necessary. Right-click the selection, and click Edit.

    Online projects only: This action isn't available in local projects. If the eye is closed in the top right corner of the Edit project template window, click it.

  3. In the Edit project template window, choose Automated actions. Click the Project automation tab if you don't see it at first.
  4. Under Available triggers, click an event when you want memoQ to export the content.
  5. Next to Actions added to the selected trigger, click the + sign. The Select actions you want to add to the trigger window appears.
  6. Choose Export change tracked document after review.

    The Export change-tracked document - settings window opens.

If you can't add this action because it's already there: Under Actions added to the selected trigger, click the same action. Next to the list, click the Settings  button. The corresponding settings window appears.

What can you do?

First, choose whose edits you want to report on. You have three choices:

  • Reviewer 1 vs. translator: See what the Reviewer 1 changed in the translator's work.
  • Reviewer 2 vs. Reviewer 1: See what the Reviewer 2 changed after Reviewer 1.
  • Reviewer 2 vs. translator: See how the Reviewer 2's changes compare to the translator's work.

    Choose one radio button.

Second, choose how the report must be grouped. You can have a separate report

  • for each reviewer,
  • for each translator,
  • for each target language,

    or you can have everything in one report file.

Under Grouping, choose a radio button. Normally, memoQ will save a separate report for each reviewer.

When you finish

To add the action to the project template: Click OK.

Nothing is exported when you click OK: To export the files automatically in an ongoing project: Create a project from this project template, and start working on it. Check the output folders.

To return to the Edit project template window, and not add an action to the project template: Click Cancel.
