Quality assurance

The aim of quality assurance in memoQ is to spot and mark machine-detectable mistakes in translation documents and translation memories. Quality assurance is a collection of tools checking for different types of potential mistakes. For a list of possible checks, click here. The quality assurance module processes memoQ segment pairs and indicates warnings. QA checking can be invoked either automatically or through a user command. memoQ provides the Resolve errors and warnings tab as a central location for viewing and correcting the collection of all warnings and errors. The quality assurance tools are indispensable for project managers and proofreaders.

Quality assurance settings are a project resource that can be saved and re-used or revised. Initially, the default configuration is used in your project, but you can change the configuration you use under Project home / Settings / Quality assurance. You can set a new default configuration under Tools / Options / Default resources / QA settings.

You can run the quality assurance checks by choosing the Run QA command in the Operations menu. Here you need to specify which document(s) or translation memory to run the checks against.

Once the processing of the documents and translation memories is complete, you can see the warnings next to the segments where one or more checks found something suspicious. Double-click the warning to view the cause of the warning. Alternatively, you can invoke the Resolve errors and warnings tab showing a list of all warnings in the document(s) by choosing Resolve Errors and Warnings from the Operations menu or from the Run QA dialog by checking the Proceed to resolve warnings after QA check box.

Some of the warnings may be false alerts. You can instruct memoQ to ignore these. If a warning is set to ignore, it will remain an ignored warning even if you run a QA check again.
