Hi,

Let's say I have used one TM (let's say it is a TM from the client) to pretranslate a document but I also have a second TM containing "potentially better" translations. I am working with a document and want memoQ to say "Hey, I have a translation in your TM which may be better than a translation coming from pre-translation process. Check it out and decide which is better".

Is memoQ capable of that?

Or is it possible in memoQ to automatically overwrite pretranslated segment with a TM hit?

Hope you know the answer icon_wink.gif

Best regards,
Piotr

Overwrite with newer Apr 14, 2011

Not sure if this is what you're looking for but:
In the Translation Grid go to: Options->Miscellaneous->TM and Corpus match overwrites target.

Is this what you're looking for?

Cheers,
Michal

Overwrite with newer strange behaviour Apr 14, 2011

Thanks for the tip Michał.
I've turned this option "on" and nothing happened. So I got back to the "Options->Miscellaneous" and found out that the checkbox is not marked. Each time when I switch the checkbox on and press OK, after getting back it is not checked... :|

What I really want to do is to go segment by segment while proofreading and stop on these segments where target is different than target in the TM.
I want memoQ to say "different target found in the TM" and then I want to check the difference, decide which translation is better and insert it to the target segment.

I'm afraid memoQ is not capable of thaticon_frown.gif

Glitch Apr 14, 2011

Ah, that must be a glitch of sorts. You may want to turn to Support to report/ask about that one.

As for what you need...a workaround: in the TM settings you can change the match threshold to 100% or 101%. That way each time you're in a segment you will see only the 100/101% matches and you can compare them. It won't work like "translate to fuzzy", because I believe this is what you're essentially asking form, but maybe it will work. I don't have the time to check it now, so it's just a off-the-top-of-my-head sort of thing. Let me know if that works.
