Currently working in an online project with a read-only, virtually empty online client termbase. The project is shared between me and another translator. The TM contains a vast amount of legacy client translations.

Concordance is an overhead, what I would like to do is add my own local termbase to the project. But I can't seem to find how to do so. MemoQ allows me to create a local termbase fine, but then I can't find a way to add it to the project?

Any help greatly appreciated!

Damn, I was looking for the answer to this too - but presumably it's not possible. Unless you ever found a way, Francesca?

Found the answer! Jan 17, 2017

Actually there is an answer - you go to the Project Home tab, click Termbases and then tick the termbase you want to add. Quite simple, once you've found the Project Home tab (is it just me or is memoQ incredibly non-intuitive?)

See this article: http://memoq.helpmax.net/en/how-to/use-resources/add-existing-resources-to-a-project/

Certainly not just you ;) Jan 19, 2017

Thank you Jane, I never did find a way!

When I have run into problems with MemoQ (just this week in fact, although I very rarely use it) I use the Yahoo group https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/memoQ/info, which you may find more helpful in future. Good luck!
