Hello to all,

I have MemoQ2015 and would like to know whether it is possible to import several Transit or Studio packages into one single MemoQ project.
I am constantly working with several small Transit packages and it would be much easier to have them all grouped into one single MemoQ project.

Does anybody have a suggestion/hint?

Greetings

I don't think that is possible sadly, but if you make sure you create a common TM for all and select it for each project at least you won't lose out on leverage...

You could always try asking Kilgray direct in case? They are usually very quick to reply!

I don’t think it’s possible, since a Transit/Studio package becomes its own project in memoQ (it’s not imported as a file into a "normal" memoQ project.

What you could try is the following:

1. For each project obtained from a Transit/Studio package, create a view that includes all documents in the project (in case there are multiple documents)
2. Export that view as MQXLZ (bilingual memoQ XLIFF)
3. Create a new memoQ project and import all MQXLZ files into that project

You should now be able to treat this as a regular memoQ project, ie. use filters, views, global search & replace etc.

Once the entire project has been translated, export the translated individual MQXLZ files and reimport them back into their original projects.

No guarantee it would work (never tried), and whether the added productivity would compensate the extra work.
