memoQ 2015: Matchpatching


Matchpatching is a new feature in memoQ 2015. It is an improved version of fragment assembly that also improves the match percentage. Bascially, TM matches are "improved" by replacing key words from other sources like termbases.

The "patched" TM match is higher than the original match and marked with an exclamation mark preceding the percentage value.
The value can never exceed 94% (an arbitrary upper limit set in memoQ).

Note that these matches are only used in the Translation results, not for leveraging the text.

Matchpatching is activated by default in memoQ 2015, but you can turn it off under Miscellaneous > Lookup results in Options.

Example:

The TM contains a translation of the sentence "Ice cream sells better than software"
The TB contains a translation for the term "hardware"
The text contains the sentence "Hardware sells better than software"
The original TM match is a 73% match, but when replacing the word "ice cream" in the TM mach with the translated term "hardware" from the TB, the match percentage is up to 93%.
