Hi there

I have a translation and an updated TM. What would be the best (most convenient) approach to seeing all the changes in the text without updating it?
I use MemoQ 5.0.55

Thanks in advance.

Re-translate the source text with the new TM, save the file in Word format, then in Word do a compare of the original translation against the new one.

Not sure this will work with ttx files. Dec 6, 2011

Thanks, JL01. But I am not sure this will work with ttx files. Moreover, I'd like to know if I can run comparisons inside MemoQ.

Hi Arkadi,

have a look at this webinar, as I think that it describes what you're looking for (after about 35 minutes).

Check out this recent discussion in the MemoQ yahoo group as well, where a freeware called ChangeTracker is mentioned which might interest you:
