memoQ 8: Pre-Translate



This function allows you to apply TM and LiveDocs segments onto a selection of segments, an open file or view, selected files on the Project Home page or the entire project.
PMs can also decide to confirm and/or lock segments based on the pretranslation match level on the Confirm/lock tab.

Exact match with context will apply only 101% matches - 100% matches preceded and followed by 100% matches (context).
Exact match will apply 100% matches.
Good match will apply any match above the "good match threshold" (the STP default is 95%, but can be adjusted).
Any match will apply any match above the "any match threshold" (the STP default is 75%, but can be adjusted).

Pretranslating overwrites existing translations the following way:

  • Empty segments are always filled in if there is a match
  • Pre-translated segments are overwritten only if there is a better match available
  • Edited or confirmed segments are NOT overwritten. You need to clear these segments first if you want to pre-translate them. Use Clear Translations for this.

If you are applying machine translation during pretranslation, tick the corresponding box and select the engine you want to use from the drop-down menu. For detailed instructions on this, see MT pre-translate for PMs.
