Dear wise colleagues, the issue is as follows: I have translated appr. half of a huge file with Fluency but now want to import this file into MemoQ2015. Is it possible to retain the previous translation and integrate it with translation with MQ or shall I save the translated part in Word or Excel and proceed with the non-translated part.
I am a computer idiot, so please bear with me and million thanks in advance.

Export as bilingual, import to memoq? Sep 4, 2016

I don't know whether this approach is possible at all. I would export the file from Fluency as a bilingual file or a project package, and then import it to memoQ.

Probably, the project folder in Fluency contains a translatable file (eg. xliff). You can prepare a new project in memoQ and use that file as the project file.

Or you can simply export the translation as a word/excel file and prepare a new project in memoQ using that file.

The first to options would retain the original segmentation. I am not sure about the third one.

Export to TMX and pre-translate Sep 5, 2016

I would probably use the old and trusted method.

You should be able to export your work to TMX in Fluency, start a new project in memoQ. In memoQ, simply import the source file again (import as new). Import your TMX to one of the Translation Memories set up for the project in memoQ. You can now run pre-translation using memoQ and have only exact matches inserted during the process. A similar procedure applies for the Terminology Data Base. You can now finish the project using memoQ.

Your advice is truly invaluable and very much appreciated. My only concern is that the text has a lot of tokens with and without spaces. I hope that MQ'll refrain from introducing any Auto changes and corrections in this regard:(
