At times you might be working from a computer that is not connected to the Internet. It is a good idea to make the necessary resources – translation memories or term bases – available for offline use. If you do this, ensure that items added to the offline translation memories and term bases are eventually imported into the same online resource. Besides, changes made by other team members should also be imported into your offline resources from time to time. In other words, online and offline resources within the same project need to be synchronized regularly. memoQ allows you to do so with the help of the Synchronize offline link under the list view of the Translation memories or Term bases pane of Project home.
Note: You might or might not be allowed to check out an online resource for offline work, according to the permissions set up by the project manager or the server administrator.
Important: You cannot use light resources in the offline mode.
