Microsoft Word 97–2003 (DOC)

Microsoft Word documents are the most common documents that get translated. In this window, you can control how memoQ imports documents from Microsoft Word 2003 or earlier (these are *.doc or *.dot documents).

This window is for documents from Word 2003 or earlier: Use it to import .doc or *.dot files.

How to get here

  1. Start importing a document from Word 2003 or earlier (a .doc file).
  2. In the Document import options window, select the Word documents, and click Change filter and configuration.
  3. The Document import settings window appears. From the Filter drop-down list, choose Microsoft Word 97–2003 filter.


What can you do?

First, memoQ converts the document into the DOCX format (the one used by Word 2007 or later).

Under Select import type: Click Import as DOCX. Do not click Import as RTF.

This works if Word 2007 or later is installed on your computer. memoQ calls Word to save the document in the newest format.

If Word 2007 or later isn't installed: Check the Aspose check box. In this case, memoQ converts the document into the newest format on its own. For that, memoQ uses a module called Aspose.

Click Import markup as inline tags. The other option is to import all formatting markup as legacy memoQ {tags}, which is not recommended.

When you finish

In the Document import options window: Click OK again to start importing the documents.

  • If this is a cascading filter, you can change the settings of another filter in the chain: Click the name of the filter at the top of the window.
