Hello fellows,
I've finally purchased & installed memoQ. Now, I'm planning to remove everything from the hard disks and install Win 7 in order to get a new start. After that I will install memoQ as main cat-tool and maybe sdl 2009 & across for the clients who don't wanna go without them.
So, the questions are:
1. Does memoQ function on win 7? (compatibleness)
2. Which cat-tool shall I install first? I suppose SDL 2009. Because it causes most headache
3. Should I create always a different TM for each language direction at memoQ?
a TM for German ->Turkish
a TM for Turkish -> German
a TM for English -> Turkish, etc.
Is it enough, when I generate a TM for each language pair, not for each direction?

I've imported my TM's as TMX from across into memoQ and played a little bit harder. I've found out that memoQ cannot match the sentences, which already exist in the TM by a specific language direction, but on the other hand memoQ finds everything at the right language direction. I suppose, it's because I have only one TM for all directions at memoQ .
Or I do something wrong?

Thanks in advance
Rasim

From the activation and installation guide: "System requirements / Operating system Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7"

I think that from version 4.5 the memories can be used in both directions. All it takes, as far as I am aware, is that you check the "Allow reverse lookup" at the moment of creating the memory.

Have you tried with the "Allow reverse lookup" checkbox enabled? I think you can only use this option at memory creation time.

Allow reverse lookup Dec 16, 2010

Tomas, thank you for the hints!
To 1) I will try win 7 & memoQ next days, let's see what happens. Handbook has 547 pages, I cannot read all:)
To 3) TM for both directions: Well, I've deleted all TM's and created a new one with checkbox enabled "Allow reverse lookup". After that, I've imported my old TM into that TM of memoQ once more, which I've signed up as main TM. It looks much better now, memo finds much more. If it is not so successful, it maybe because of me & my old stuff, lot of non usable tags and not perfectly separated segments. I think, I must go over my old TM and reorganize it.
I have to find the way to readjust memoQ better & finer.
To 2) Which cat-tool is first to install?
No idea!

Cheers
Rasim
