memoQ 8: Filtering and sorting segments


The Filtering & Sorting bar above the translation grid provides some very flexible means to filter and sort segments.
These are highly useful tools both for PMs prepping projects, translators working efficiently and for updating feedback or errors.

The bar contains the following tools:


  • Text filters: These fields can be populated with text to filter out only those segments that contain the text strings you want.
    Enter text in either or both fields and press Enter or click the icon with the funnel and spyglass to apply the filter.
    Click on the cog wheel icon to find settings for case-sensitivity and regex, or to extend the search to comments of context IDs.
  • The spyglass with the X icon removes all filters. Note that filters stack - applying a filter when a filter is already applied will only filter out candidates visible with the first filter.
  • Sorting is done with the drop-down menu in the far right of the bar. You can sort alphabetically, by frequency, segment status, match rate, text length and timestamp. Revert to No sorting to remove any sorting.
  • Segment status filter: The funnel icon opens the segment status filter menu. There are loads of potential filter options here.
    The Common filters tab contains most of what you would need for translation purposes (eg. filtering for unlocked segments only).
    The Status, Conflicts and changes, and Tags and QA tabs contains more advanced filter options that can be very helpful depending on what exactly you want to filter for or find in the files.
