Setting yourself as proofreader
Your project role determines if the segments you confirm become Confirmed or Proofread. When you work in a local project you have created yourself – either because you did not receive the project from anybody else, or because you are the project manager –, you can set your own role.
In a local project, the Translator role is the default setting. The segments you confirm become Confirmed, indicated by a single green tick mark.
If you want to work in the proofreader role instead – as the “master reviewer” in the Reviewer 2 role – you can set this role for yourself in the Project home tab: go to Settings, and check the User is proofreader check box:
From this point on, memoQ treats you as Reviewer 2: the segments you confirm become Proofread, indicated by a double green tick mark.
