Hi,
I'm trying to learn MemoQ using the translator pro trial edition V6.2 because my customer will ask for MemoQ in the next future and I'm trying to compare it with Trados, which I know better.
Using the dummy example below, MemoQ suggested the translation with the different number after translating the first one (e.g. line 3 after translating line 2) but I have to confirm every line while Trados would translate them automatically without any confirmation.
I have already tested (I think) all possible options also reading other topics related to Fuzzy, etc. but I without succes.
Translation test
Translation test 1
Translation test 2
Translation test 3
Translation test 4
Translation test 5
Translation test 6
Translation 1 test
Translation 2 test
Translation 3 test
Translation 4 test
Translation 5 test
Translation test 1 2
Translation test 1 3
Translation test 1 4

Thank's a lot for your help
Dany

Auto-translation rules Apr 7, 2013

I believe you need to look the topic "Auto-translation rules" in MemoQ help and configure MemoQ accordingly.

You can choose one of the existing definitions for a different language. Chances are that it will work for you.

Not possible Apr 8, 2013

Hi Daniela,

AFAIK this is not possible. Auto-translation rules are useful for e.g. making sure that thousands/decimal separators are converted correctly, but the similar segments will still become 99% matches, and auto-propagation only works with identical repetitions in MemoQ.
Be aware that MemoQ is only able to make automatic replacements if the number of digits is identical in source and target. See:
http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/memoQ/message/30862

If you have a whole lot of these segments, you may want to pre-translate the text occasionally, order the segments by match rate, filter unconfirmed segments and shift select groups of 99% matches to confirm them in one go. Not exactly smooth, but perhaps better than nothing.

Thank you again for your replies.
It is very strange that memoQ cannot do it because it has many features, also more powerful than Trados, but this "simple" numbers recognition it seems to be not so powerful.
When you translate e.g. Catalogs, there are really a lot of numbers, order numbers, prices, etc. with different formats and lenghts and have to confirm each of them, it takes a lot of time.
This sequence below in Trados needs just one click:
Translation test 1
Translation test 2
Translation test 3
Translation test 44
Translation test 555
Translation test 6666
