Translation results list

As you translate, memoQ assists you in the background. It unifies the power of several local and online translation resources, including translation memories, LiveDocs corpora, term bases, fragment searching, auto-translation rules, sub-segment matching, etc. Results of all queries are gathered and displayed in the Translation results pane of the translation editor.

The Translation results list is part of the translation editor. Whenever you work on a document, this list is always active.

At the top of it, there are translation results from TMs or LiveDocs marked in red; below, you can see suggestions from TMs and TBs. At the bottom, there is information about the Project, Client, Domain, and Subdomain. Below, there's the document name, details on when it was last modified, document language, and a user name working on the document, as well as the match percentage.

When you step on another row, memoQ starts querying the translation resources. The different types of resources are detailed in the sections below.
