A suggestion for the translation interface in memoQ

As an old user of memoQ, I'm testing out the latest release of this CAT and I'm really enjoying working with it. I especially like the possibility of Term Extraction, Web Research without a separate Browser, the numerous MT plugins, and.. and...

Here an idea to give the translation interface even more power for the translator.
Concordance and the LSC display in yellow are IMO one of the most powerful features in memoQ. Building Termbases takes a lot of time (which now can be reduced with the in-build term extraction), so if one skips that, still terms will be displayed in yellow comming from the translation memories or the LiveDocs.
Terms comming from Termbases are already displayed in blue in the source.

My idea is to make the Longest Concordance String (LSC) display in yellow in the source segments (as an option). This is especially useful if the result window is crowed with a lot of terms or matches and you always have to scroll though it. It will save time to the translator who can see in the source text what he needs and double-click on it. This will insert a term from the termbases or: display the concordance immediately *without the need to scroll the list* .
