memoQ 8: Using a Licence From STP


If you have your own memoQ licence, you don't need to worry about any further setups but can proceed to checking out any project as described here. Others can temporarily borrow licences from STP for the duration of the project.
Take a look at your project instructions - they will tell you which instructions you need:
  • I need to work on STP's memoQ server (mq.stptrans.com): see immediately below
  • I need to work on a non-STP memoQ server (anything other than mq.stptrans.com): scroll further down on this page

  • I need to work on STP's memoQ server (mq.stptrans.com)


    Step 1: Make sure memoQ is installed and activated

    Make sure you have memoQ 8 installed, updated and activated as described here. You can see your current version in the memoQ Application Menu.


    If you do have a serial number here, you are good to move on to Step 2.
    If you do not have a serial number, activate your memoQ.


    Step 2: Clear your CAL tab

    Still in the above tab, click Activation. Go to the tab called CAL, and make sure what you see mirrors the screenshot below. If you see any login information here, click Clear. You should not have anything configured here, otherwise you cannot get a licence.


    Step 3: Check out your project

    Close the Activation dialog and use the Check out from Server command to check out a project for translation.
    A dialog window will open (see screenshot below). Insert or type in the client server URL or select it from the drop down menu if you've used it previously and click select. Give the login information if/when prompted.
    Use the search filed to find your project, select it, and click Check out project. As you are checking out the project, you are also being granted a temporary license in the process. The project will now appear in your project list and you can get started.

    Step 1: Make sure memoQ is installed and activated

    Make sure you have memoQ 8 installed, updated and activated as described here. You can see your current version in the memoQ Application Menu.


    If you do have a serial number here, you are good to move on to Step 2.
    If you do not have a serial number, activate your memoQ.

    Step 2: Configure the CAL server

    Still in the above tab, click Activation. Your STP PM has manually assigned a licence to you, and you need to now grab it from STP's server, before you can check out the work from our client's server.
    1. Go to the CAL tab in the dialog window that opens and click Configure.
    2. Then enter the STP server URL mq.stptrans.com and click Test. Insert your STP logins when prompted.
    3. Proceed to checking out the project as per Step 3

    NOTE! Configuring CAL is only a temporary thing: when you are done with the project that is not on STP's server, you need to clear the CAL information again before you can check out projects from STP's server. Scroll to the top of this page for these instructions.


    Step 3: Check out your project

    Close the Activation dialog and use the Check out from Server command to check out a project for translation.
    A dialog window will open (see screenshot below). Insert or type in the client server URL or select it from the drop down menu if you've used it previously and click select. Give the login information if/when prompted.
    Use the search filed to find your project, select it, and click Check out project. The project will now appear in your project list and you can get started.
