I downloaded an XTM project as an XLIFF file and work on XLIFF file in memoQ. However, memoQ automatically imports M (match) or I (ICE match) segments as "reviewed", showing a double check mark, and I can't edit these segments at all, even though I sometimes need to.
I'm not a MemoQ user.
If I understand this post correctly:
...this may be a known problem with MemoQ. If the person who created the XLIFF file chose to lock segments, then you may not be able to unlock them. You may in fact also be unable to unlock segments that you yourself have locked. (The post relates to MemoQ XLIFF files, so maybe it doesn't relate to your generic XLIFF files.)
I suspect you should be able to unlock the segments by editing the XLIFF file in a text editor, but that's hacking. I have had to do such edits to XLIFF files that I downloaded from XTM in the past in order to be able to use them correctly in OmegaT, and the XTM server accepted my edited XLIFF files even though I had tinkered with the segment statuses. But this is an "own risk" procedure that you would perform either on the original XLIFF file or on the MemoQ MQXLIFF file.
I suppose part of your question is: if MemoQ believes that the segment should be locked, does that mean that the client also wanted those segments to be locked? I don't know. Perhaps the client knows.
