Hello,

I am working with a team of translators on a large project and using MemoQ, since every day I have to import the other translators' TM to keep consistency throughout the project, I en up with too many entries in the Translation result window, most of these entries are red or yellow (at least according to my configuration), but they are the kind that are some times guesses as to what I might need to use in a specific segment (don't know if I make myself clearicon_smile.gif, my termbase entries are in blue and sometimes those end up at the end of a long line of entries that have little use to me.
The question is, is it possible to keep certain entries from appearin in the translation results window?

Thanks
Paula

Have you tried.... Jul 20, 2011

To change the settings of the memory for a lower number of matches?

Go to the Resource Console, select your memory, choose Properties, drag the adjustment slider to the "Faster lookup" option and see whether this helps.

If this does not help, you can also try to add penalties to other members of the team, specifying lower matches to the user names of the other people (as long as you know those names).
