I want to be able to quickly view the original document I am translating at the moment, and wonder if there is any shortcut for that from the editing view? Or else, how do I download the original files from the server project I'm working on now? The purpose is to get more context by viewing each of the many different files separately.

There is some alternatives on the Project home page (right-click, Export, Export (stored patch)), but I'm not sure if I can use those.

view pane? Jan 9

You can view your documents in the view pane

1. if these source documents are originally in word, xml etc. simple formats - you can find a list of file formats in memoQ help menus.

2. if you have these word etc. source files in your project files, that is, you are the person who created the project.

I am not sure about the online projects but I assume that you would need a special permission to get access to such files and it is probably much easier to ask the client to send these files in word, pdf etc. formats.
