Run QA in memoQ

MemoQ runs  some basic quality checks on a document as you translate it.

However, you may need to check different things – or you need to check the consistency on the segment level, which is not done automatically.

If you want to run these checks or you want to check for consistency, use the Run QA command after you have completed the translation.

On the Review ribbon, click Quality Assurance.
The Run QA window opens.

Choose the documents or segments that memoQ must check: Choose a scope.

A scope tells memoQ which documents to look at. You have the following options – choose one:

  • Project: memoQ checks all segments in all documents of the current project. If the project has two or more target languages, memoQ will check segments in every target language.
  • ·       Active document: memoQ checks all segments in the active document. The active document is the one you are looking at in the translation editor. You can choose this only if you are working on a document in the translation editor.
  • Selected documents: memoQ checks all segments in the selected documents. You can choose this only if you select several documents in Translations under Project home. It doesn’t work when the translation editor is in the front.
  • From cursor: memoQ checks segments below the current position in the active document. The active document is the one you are looking at in the translation editor. You can choose this only if you are working on a document in the translation editor.
  • Open documents: memoQ checks all segments in every document that is open in a translation editor tab.
  • Selection: memoQ checks the selected segments in the active document. The active document is the one you are looking at in the translation editor. You can choose this only if you are working on a document in the translation editor.

Then, decide what happens after the QA checks are run:

  • To review the errors and warnings in the Resolve errors and warnings tab, immediately after running the checks: Check the Proceed to resolve warnings after QA check box.
  • To look at the inconsistent translations in the translation editor: Check the Create view of inconsistent translations check box.

 If you use the Resolve errors and warning you will see the list below: This is the recommended approach as it will show the row of the error and what the issue is. You can then resolve it directly in the corresponding translation segment in the translation editor or ignore the error if it is not relevant.

Once all relevant issues are resolved you can then proceed to deliver the project.
