Select corpus settings

A LiveDocs settings (or corpus 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.

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

Normally, a LiveDocs settings resource belongs to a project, not to a LiveDocs corpus.

However, in a project, you can make an exception: You can use a LiveDocs corpus, and tell memoQ to use a different LiveDocs settings resource for that corpus.

How to get here

  1. Open a project.
  2. In Project home, choose LiveDocs.
  3. Select a LiveDocs corpus. Check its check box to include it in the project.
  4. On the LiveDocs ribbon, click Settings.

    The Select Corpus Settings window opens.


What can you do?

In the Select Corpus Settings window, memoQ lists the LiveDocs settings resources available to the project.

To choose a LiveDocs settings resource: Check its check box.

When you finish

To change the LiveDocs settings for the selected LiveDocs corpus: Click OK.

memoQ will include the LiveDocs settings resource in the project, and use it for the selected LiveDocs corpus only. You will get back to Project home.

To return to Project home without changing the LiveDocs settings: Click Cancel.
