Using term bases in projects
You can use term bases stored locally on your computer, or on one or more memoQ servers. The latter are called remote term bases. When you are working on a project, memoQ does not use all available term bases by default. To use a term base in your current project, you must explicitly select that term base for your project. You can do this by clicking the check box next to the term base in the list of the Term bases pane.
You can use multiple term bases in your project, and you can mix local and remote term bases. One of these term bases is designated as the primary term base of your project. As you work on your translation, you can use keyboard shortcuts such as Ctrl+Q (Quick add term) and Ctrl+E (Add term) to add new terms to the term bases — without leaving the translation editor. When you do this, memoQ does not ask which term base you want to add the term to. When you have multiple term bases assigned to your project, memoQ must be able to select one of them to add new terms. This term base is the primary term base.
You can set any term base as the primary one. If another term base was the primary one previously, it will be “demoted” to a regular term base.
