Dear all,

Could someone explain me how I can align with MemoQ? Can I compare it with WinAlign from Trados?
I know my translations will be aligned during translating, but I have a source and target text which I would like to align in MemoQ.

Thanks a lot!

Alignment is done in the "LiveDocs" section of the Project home pane.

The instruction is available at

Outside view May 27, 2013

Obviously, this is covered in the help section.

However, sometimes help sections get a little bogged-down because people are taking about "their own baby", which they see through their own eyes. For some useful hints on this – and other aspects of memoQ – think about investing in the fresh outside view here:

Hi Els

For this I had to set up a project so that the metadata from the project was then attached to the segments that came from the files I was aligning, otherwise there will be no metadata attached to the segments.

Open up LiveDocs and create a new corporra - upload the files you want to align - can be done in pairs or as a bulk upload for more than 1 pair of files.

Once this is done, open the pair up in the livedocs window and start aligning - can take a bit of time to be honest but doing it now may save you finding out that they are not aligned, when you are in a rush to get a job done - so best to maybe get them done when you have the time.

There are a number of short cut keys you can use to align them as well - right clicking shows you what they are.
