The Warnings (or Errors) window shows the quality assurance (QA) warnings for just one segment in the translation editor.
When you confirm a segment in the translation editor, or run QA on a document, memoQ adds warnings or errors to segments that break a QA rule. You can see these signs in the translation editor next to the target column, under the translation's match rate.
How to get here
- Open a project.
- Open a document for editing.
- Find a segment that has a warning or an error.
Double-click the lightning bolt or the exclamation mark .

Can't find a warning that you know was there? Perhaps you ran the Run QA command, but then confirmed one or more segments. That's when some warnings might disappear. This is because the Run QA command runs more checks than segment confirmation does. These are mostly consistency checks (e.g. checking if the same segment was translated several different ways). When you confirm a segment, QA rechecks the segment. But this time only 'quick' checks run, the consistency checks don't. Because of this, the warning sign might disappear even if you do not change the segment or the QA settings resource.
What can you do?
Examine each of the segment's warnings and errors.
Ignore warnings. To ignore a warning: In its row, check the Ignore check box.
After you ignore every warning in a segment, the lightning bolt turns gray:
