Hi there

Does anyone know how you can export changes from an MS Word document with the track-changes mode enabled to memoQ and then get the translated changes back to the document, with the changes earlier exported overwritten with your translation? Importantly, the original changes and their translation should retain their owners.

Many thanks in advance.

Arkadi

Some pointers May 9, 2014

Hi Arkadi,

I'm afraid I did not understand your workflow, but you should look at:
1. History/Reports tab on the Translations pane
2. X-translate in the Operations menu
3. Import reviewed document on the TRanslations pane

I guess you'll find the solution thereicon_smile.gif

Word's COMPARE function May 10, 2014

I'm also afraid I did not fully understand your workflow, maybe the following is helpful:

Back up your document.

Save as another identical document and receive the changes. Import the “new” document to memoQ, translate it, and export a monolingual translation.
(the original source and target docs can be made into a TMX or a two-column rtf file just like what memoQ exports, to use in LiveDocs for reference).

Make comparison between the original translation and your translation with the MS Word self-owned COMPARE function.

Why keep the Word comments? May 24, 2017

I am not sure if a workflow wherein a Word document, Track Changes enabled, comments retained, has to be imported as such, and also to translate the comments and the owners. Pardon my ignorance, but I fail to see the usefulness of keeping track changes and/or comments.

To me, a Word file with enabled track changes, and visible changes and comments, is an unfinished or preliminary document, not a final version.
