Resource Console - LiveDocs settings

A LiveDocs settings resource tells memoQ how to get matches from a LiveDocs corpus. This means two things: match thresholds and penalties. Match thresholds set the minimum match rate of any match that memoQ shows, and tell memoQ what counts as a good match. These are used in pre-translation. Penalties are used when a match is not reliable: if the translation is bad or inadequate (or, in the case of LiveDocs, comes from an aligned document pair, and there is a misalignment), the match will be worse than the actual match rate.

Using alignment? You may need to look at penalties: If at least one of your LiveDocs corpora contains aligned document pairs, you may need to check the penalties. Otherwise, you may not receive matches from that LiveDocs corpus when you pre-translate your project for good matches.

To learn more about penalties, see the topic about editing LiveDocs settings.

You cannot edit the default LiveDocs settings. Either you need to make a copy of the default LiveDocs settings resource, or you need to create a new one.

Belongs to a project, not to a LiveDocs corpus: You choose a LiveDocs settings resource for a project, not for a LiveDocs corpus. If you choose a LiveDocs settings resource for a project, memoQ uses them for all LiveDocs corpora in the project. Then again, in a different project, you can use different LiveDocs settings for the same LiveDocs corpora.

How to get here

  1. In the top left corner of the memoQ window, click the Resource console Resource console icon. icon. The Resource console window opens.
  2. Under Resource, click LiveDocs settings. The LiveDocs settings pane appears.
