New user penalty (dialog)

In this dialog, you can set a match rate penalty for a specific user. This penalty is part of a TM settings set. If this TM settings set is active, whenever a translation memory match arrives with a specific author name, memoQ deduces the penalty amount from the match rate. For example, if a 80% match is found from user KB (see the screenshot below), memoQ deduces 5 percent, so it will report a match rate of 75%.

MemoQ new user penalty dialog New user penalty


In the Edit TM Settings dialog, click the Add link below the User penalties list.


ยท User name text box: Type the name of the user whose translations you want to penalize. Whenever there is a translation memory match where the author name is the same as the user name specified here, memoQ will apply the penalty.
ยท Penalty text box: Type the amount of the penalty. This is the number of percents that memoQ will deduce from the original match rate if the author name in the match is the same as the name in the User name box.

Note: The author name is a meta-information field that exists for every translation memory entry. Each translation memory and memoQ project has a default author name. You can also change the author name when you edit the translation memory entry, either from the Translation results list, or the translation memory editor.


Click OK to add the user penalty. Click Cancel to close the dialog without adding the penalty.
