The new Match Patch feature in memoQ 2015 (by Dominique Pivard)

The new Match Patch feature in memoQ 2015 (by Dominique Pivard) | Translator Tools | Scoop.it

Under certain conditions, memoQ 2015 is able to “repair” (“fix”, “patch”) fuzzy matches. When a new source segment only differs from an already translated segment on one or two words that are found in a termbase, memoQ will yield an “enhanced” match rate for a fuzzy match that attempts to fix the differences. Such enhanced match rates are preceded by an exclamation mark.

Stanislav Okhvat's insight:

Dominique Pivard demonstrates the new Match Patch feature in memoQ 2015 which automatically repairs fuzzy matches with results coming from termbases and other resources.

New features in TransTools 3.6: Correctomatic – versatile QA tool for correcting words and phrases | Translator Tools | Scoop.it

TransTools v.3.6 has been released.

 

Correctomatic is a new quality assurance tool designed to search documents for words/phrases defined in correction lists and correct them quickly and easily. You can use it to check and enforce consistency with a style guide, apply a specific language variant (e.g., American or British English) across a document, find potential errors that are difficult to detect with a spellchecker, enforce a specific preferential spelling of a word, find potential translation errors, etc. This versatile tool should be useful for translators, proofreaders, copywriters, etc.

 

Improvements and bug fixes were made in Multiple Replace, Unbreaker and Document Cleaner (TransTools for Word).
