memoQ 2015: Working with comments

Files can contain comments on segment level and on document level.

Bilingual files such as memoQ XLIFF or XLIFF:doc or SDLXLIFF, which you import in your project, can also contain comments

In addition to memoQ file formats and two-column RTF, comments also get exported with SDLXLIFF that have been imported into memoQ for translation.  If you tick the export comments box in export settings, memoQ creates an extra column in the table in the RTF file with the comments exported from the selected document. This option is turned on by default.

Comments in segments


Add a note to a segment by using the shortcut CTRL + M, or double clicking on the bubble, or using the Comments button in Translation and Review ribbons. When you have the Notes dialog open, you can view, edit or delete existing notes and add new notes.


You can filter for all segments that contain comments in the Status tab in the filter options.


Commented segment has a golden bubble. Empty bubbles are pale blue.


You can delete an individual comment by simply clearing its content. You can also use the Clear Comments button on the Preparation ribbon to delete all comments from a project, file or selection.

Comments in documents

You can add a comment to a document in translations pane. Right-click on a document and select View/Edit Document Comments or double-click on the bubble.

Exporting comments and track changes into a Word file

You can export memoQ comments as comments in Word. Using the same command you can export tracked changes between 2 versions of the memoQ file to be shown as Word track changes.
