memoQ online project

To manage an online project, use the memoQ online project window. This window is very similar to Project home, which you use to work with local projects.

In the memoQ online project window, you can do the following:

  • Import documents into an online project, assign them to users, and launch the project
  • Add participants to the project and grant them privileges
  • Add resources (translation memories, term bases, LiveDocs corpora) to online projects
  • Adjust communication settings in the online project
  • View reports and history from the online project
  • Check out the project to view or edit documents

    If your organization uses Language Terminal, and the project is connected to the Language Terminal profile of the organization, you can do more:

  • Calculate the cost of the work of each participant, and calculate the overall cost of a project
  • Check the availability of translators and reviewers when you assign them to documents
  • Get cumulative reports about your projects in Language Terminal

Requires memoQ project manager: You need the project manager edition of memoQ to manage online projects.

You need to be a project manager or an administrator: You can manage online projects only if you are a member of the Project managers or Administrators group on the memoQ TMS – or if you have the Project manager role in the project.

For subvendors: If another organization owns the memoQ TMS, and you are accessing the memoQ online project window as a subvendor group manager, you will see a different window.

Does not create online projects: To create an online project, use the New online project from template window or the Publish project wizard. Use the memoQ online project window to manage existing online projects.

Cannot connect projects to Language Terminal here: You need to connect an online project to Language Terminal when you create it. After an online project is created, it cannot be connected anymore.

  1. On the project management dashboard, find the project you need to manage. Use the search bar if needed.

  3. On the Project ribbon of the Manage projects window, click Manage. A new memoQ online project window opens.

With manual control


On autopilot (turns on after you create a project from a template)

What can you do?

Autopiloted projects show less: When a project is on autopilot, only the Overview, Translations, Finances, People, History, and Reports panes are available. A project is put on autopilot after it is created from a template. Resources and settings that usually come from the template are hidden. To turn off the autopilot - because you want to add another translation memory, for example: On the Online Project ribbon, click Turn Off Autopilot. You can turn off the autopilot, but keep the the automated actions running at the same time. Normally, you need to clear the Turn off automated actions as well check box, unless there is a problem with the automated actions themselves.

When you finish

To return to Project home or to the Dashboard: Close the memoQ online project window.

Switch windows: You can open several online projects for management. Each online project opens in a separate window. To switch between them and the Dashboard or Project home (if you have a local project open): press and hold down Alt, and press Tab a few times until you get to the window you want. Or: On the Windows taskbar, click the memoQ icon, and then click the window you want to switch to.
