I've found out the trick to pre-translate a document (or a selection of rows) using only the active Termbases.
To do that, you must:

deactivate all TMs;
in the Pre-translate settings, deactivate "Automatically join..."; chose Exact Match, Fragment Assembling.

Why using only the Termbases? Well, for a large project you have extracted a lot of terms with a third-party program and added them to the document in order to complete the Termbases or to see (after this pre-translation) if they are already available. The filtering tool in MemoQ will be very handy to get you the context of terms to be added.
Your ongoing translation will be a lot easier.

So, my wishlist for future MemoQ versions:
The Pre-translate window should also include

"Use TMs"
"Use Termbases"

with the possibility to activate / deactivate them.
Thanks very much,
