memoQ for reviewers

memoQ is a versatile tool intended both for translation and review work. However, many default settings in memoQ are defined with translators, not reviewers in mind. I'm going to present various scenarios for reviewing text both translated in memoQ (offline and online projects) and bilingual imports from different software (e.g. Trados Studio) and show you how to work efficiently employing various memoQ features like penalties for users/TMs/metadata, match insertion threshold or status change.
