Hello everyone

I'm a non-user of MemoQ who has to do an agency job in MemoQ. I can see that I can export the text as "bilingual" files, but the "import" options are greyed out. How can I import an exported file after I've translated and/or edited it?



Thanks
Samuel

The URL you mention explains how the import function works when it is not greyed out. In my case (if you look at my screenshot) the import function is greyed out.

You cannot import already imported file (after you translated and/or edited it). You can only export it from CAT system. You can import (into CAT) only external file.

I want to import a file after I've exported it. I know some CAT tools can let you export files without giving you the option of importing it again, but AFAIK MemoQ's bilingual-review functionality is meant for exactly that: first you export the file, then you work on it, then you import it back.

Are you a MemoQ user?

Not sure... Jan 22, 2014

Hi Samuel,
I think you're working on an online project...so I think there is the possibility that you can proofread the document on memoQ only. Probably no importing and no changes are permitted on online projects.

But...which is the version of the memoQ you're using?(I have the last 2013 R2 now, and I have a reimport feature on online projects as well).

If you have the 6, please have a look at this link:
http://kilgray.com/memoq/60/help-en/index.html?work_in_a_project_set_up_by_a_.html

Maybe it can be useful.

I cannot check on versions 6 and 6.2 now, sorry, but I'm sure that if you contact Kilgray's support, they will clear your doubts.

Best regards,
Davide
