Resource Console - Translation memories

A translation memory is a database that contains pairs of segments (source and target language). When you use a translation memory in a project, memoQ will offer matches for the segments you are translating. When there is a segment in the translation memory that is the same or very similar to the segment you are translating, memoQ can offer the stored translation - so that you do not have to translate the segment from scratch.

Some translation memories are reversible. If the project has two or more target languages, you must choose one target language first. If you create a translation memory from Resource Console, you can pick two languages.

To learn more about adding a translation memory to a project: See the documentation articles about translation memories for local projects and translation memories for online projects.
