memoQ online project - Translation memories

Translation memories (TMs) are databases that contain segments of text and their translations. When you confirm a segment in the translation editor, memoQ saves your translation in a translation memory.

When you are translating or pre-translating a document, memoQ will scan every translation memory in the project, and offer segments where the source text is the same or similar enough to the segment you need to translate.

In one project, memoQ can use several translation memories at the same time. One of these translation memories is the working translation memory - that is where memoQ saves your translation when you confirm a segment.

In the Translation memories pane of the memoQ online project window, you can choose translation memories for an online project.

A translation memory is bilingual: A translation memory works between the source language of the project and one of the target languages. You need a separate set of translation memories for each target language of the project.

Requires memoQ project manager: You need the project manager edition of memoQ to manage online projects.

You need to be a project manager or an administrator: You can manage online projects only if you are a member of the Project managers or Administrators group on the memoQ TMS – or if you have the Project manager role in the project.

How to get here

First, open an online project for management:

  1. On the project management dashboard, find the project you need to manage. Use the search bar if needed.
  2. Double-click the project name, or click it, and on the Project ribbon, click Manage Manage icon.. A new memoQ online project window opens.
  3. On the left, click the Translation memories icon. The Translation memories pane appears.


What can you do?

When you finish

To return to Project home or the Dashboard: Close the memoQ online project window. Before that, make sure you save your changes.

Switch windows: You can open several online projects for management. Each online project opens in a separate window. To switch between them and the Dashboard or Project home (if you have a local project open): press and hold down Alt, and press Tab a few times until you get to the window you want. Or: On the Windows taskbar, click the memoQ icon, and then click the window you want to switch to.
