memoQ's LiveDocs technology allows you to reuse existing translations without going through a translation memory. You can also use it to add background material to the project.
memoQ can look up phrases and segments in a LiveDocs corpus in the same way as in a translation memory.
Empty corpus: The new LiveDocs corpus you create will not contain any documents or document pairs. You will be able to add documents to it, from a project or from the Resource Console. To learn how to add documents to a LiveDocs corpus, see Help about the LiveDocs pane of Project home.
Lookups are controlled through LiveDocs settings: To learn how memoQ searches for segments in a LiveDocs corpus, see Help about editing a LQA model.
LiveDocs corpora work with all languages: An empty LiveDocs corpus has no languages. You can add documents and document pairs of any language. A LiveDocs corpus offers matches in all the languages of the documents in it.
How to get here
Open the Resource Console. Choose LiveDocs. Under the list, click Create new.
From an online project: Open an online project for management. In the memoQ online project window, choose Livedocs. On the LiveDocs ribbon, click Create/use new. This command creates the LiveDocs corpus, and adds it to the project.
If My Computer is selected in Resource Console or at the top of the memoQ window
What can you do?
If you come from the Resource Console, and a memoQ server was selected at the top: You can choose to create the LiveDocs corpus on your own computer; or to create it on the server.
To make your choice: Click the My computer or the Remote radio button.
You cannot choose another server here. To create the LiveDocs corpus on another server: Close this window. Choose the other server at the top of the Resource Console. Click Create new again.
Works in Project home, too, if you are running memoQ project manager: In memoQ project manager, you can choose a server at the top of the main memoQ window. If a local project is open, and a server is selected at the top, you will be able to choose the location.
- Type a name in the Name box. The name must be unique on your computer - or on the server where you're creating it.
- Describe the future contents of the LiveDocs corpus in the Description box. Never leave it empty: think of the other people who may need to use this LiveDocs corpus, too.
- To protect the LiveDocs corpus against accidental changes: Check the Read-only check box. memoQ won't let anyone make changes to it - until you clear the Read-only check box in the Properties window for the LiveDocs corpus.
When you finish
To create the LiveDocs corpus: Click OK.
