As far as I understand, MemoQ project manager edition is supposed to have version control for documents. I would be grateful if someone could help me figure out exactly how it works.

My document was translated which corresponded to version 2.1. Now it has passed into the review stage, and the current version is 2.3.

My objective is to somehow obtain the translation from version 2.1 (ideally via an exported DOC/RTF file) without actually restoring that version, i.e. without overwriting the current version 2.3.

MemoQ Help is very skimp on the matter (as always).

Any help is much appreciated!

Not sure but..... May 28, 2013

Hi Mikhail

OK I think if you go to the Translations panel and highlight the file you need and then select History/Reports, the versioning window will appear.

If you highlight both your V2.3 and your V2.2 file, then select View differences using track changes link at the bottom right hand side, both versions should open.

If you click on V2.2 you can then export active document?

Does that allow you to export it without making any alterations to the newer version?

Hope this helpsicon_smile.gif

A solution May 28, 2013

Hi rmackay,

Thanks for your suggestion. I tried doing that but got an error.

MemoQ Support suggested the following solution:

1. Restore the older minor version.
2. Export the translation.
3. Restore the version that was current before step 1.

I also inserted step 0, Create snapshot of the current version, so as not to get confused later at step 3. So the procedure looks as follows:

0. Create a snapshot of the current version.
1. Restore the older minor version.
2. Export the translation.
3. Restore the snapshot.

This seems to have worked.
