Hello,
I have transformed a rather long PDF documentation into plain UTF-8 text, and made all possible corrections with search/replace/remove to make the Align in MemoQ as easy as possible. I then have defined some exceptions in the segmentation rules.
The result is a very good one, but still I need to work on the Align.

My question is: by joining & splitting segments, will MemoQ add a space beween the splitted part automatically or not? Do I have to chose the end of a word, add a space and only then chose the Join command ?

Thanks for this clarification!
Mike

The answer is yes. There is the danger to glue words together once the MemoQ tags dissapear (by export and editing in other tools.)

What does the Alignment Export into a MemoQ bilingual mqxlz doc? Nov 28, 2013

Hello,

I have figured out solutions for my queries above, but now I have a new question:

In the window that shows the Alignment pairs, there is the option to import / export to or from a mqxlz doc which is (or should be ) a bilingual document.

When I export my alignment pair and then try to open the mqxlz file in the translation document window, this document is then empty.

what is this mqxlz document supposed to do ?
It would be fine if I could get my alignment fully into the translation editor so I can do operations that are not possible in the Alignment grid (especially filtering and completing insertions)

Thanks to feedback,
Mike
