memoQ backup wizard
In memoQ 9.13, we’re introducing memoQ backup wizard which can be used to back up your memoQ projects and any associated resources. You can either perform backups manually or schedule regular backups. You can rest assured that you will always have all the data you need. You can even transfer your entire memoQ desktop application to a different device and resume your work there.
There are many potential unexpected challenges one faces while translating. Your computer crashes, you lose data, or you purchase a new computer and want to continue working from where you left off. From this point on, you do not have to worry about these challenges anymore. memoQ will handle it for you.
With memoQ backup wizard, you can back up your local projects and all the local resources registered within them. You can also back up your personalized custom settings, e.g., appearance, hotkeys, etc., and even your entire memoQ desktop application, restore it to a different computer, and resume your work on that device.
In addition to manually backing up content as many times as you want, you can schedule backups so that all the resources you need are automatically and regularly backed up. You can make decisions about the backup schedule, what resources you need, and even whether you want to retain your old backups (and if so, how many of them).
Other User-requested Features
You ask and we deliver. As always, we’ve added some features suggested by memoQ users to our product team. These features that will help users most during their day-to-day work include the opportunity to change default smart quotes, the ability to view TTML subtitles using the SDK preview, and the ability to update storage options on all screens of the Bilingual export wizard dialog. New functionality is also available in WebTrans—matches from your chosen machine translation engine are now available among translation results.
Change default smart quotes
As a part of AutoCorrect, memoQ offers smart quotes where the target language quotation format is automatically detected and used. If your text requires different typography, you can now change the default quotation mark format of any language using the new Customize smart quotes dialog.
TTML subtitle format is now supported by the preview tool
Subtitles come in many different file formats—now, TTML is supported by memoQ and can be viewed in the Video Preview Tool. When importing TTML (and similar) files, the start/end timecodes are detected by the software enabling you to watch the related video in real-time through the Video Preview Tool.
Changes to the Bilingual export wizard
When you are exporting a two-column RTF file or a memoQ XLIFF file using the Bilingual export wizard, you must manually change the export settings if you're not happy with the default. From this point on, memoQ will remember your last settings, and automatically use it the next time the wizard is used. Fewer clicks, faster export!
Machine Translation results available in WebTrans
As in the memoQ desktop client, MT results are displayed among the translation results in WebTrans . Like in the desktop client, you can also prioritize in which order you would like the different types of matches (TM, TB, automatic concordance, etc.) displayed.
