|Ctrl+Shift+Q||Starts the memoQ TM search tool, immediately searches for any text on the Windows Clipboard.|
|Ctrl+C||Copies new text to the TM search window and executes a search.|
|Ctrl+Alt+C||Copies the target text of a selected match to the Clipboard.|
|Ctrl+Shift+C||Copies the source text of a selected match to the Clipboard.|
|Ctrl+V||Pastes the Clipboard text into another application.|
Although the initial version of this tool is quite useful, many users have realized that further refinements of its features would make its application more flexible and effective. Some suggestions so far include
- selecting/deselecting all TMs
- filtering TMs by metadata
- saving and loading profiles (collections of particular TMs and settings)
- indicating match sources (i.e. TM, preferably with metadata)
I hope that Kilgray will take the further development of this tool seriously and consider how to improve and expand it, perhaps to include remote translation memories as well. The current version of the TM search tool requires a memoQ license on the computer where it is used, but separate licensing could also be quite interesting. This could be useful, for example, in collaborative projects with partners who use different tools and working methods or for those who want to use memoQ translation memories as bilingual concordances. I see the potential for a value-added service here if I can provide such a concordance (for a fee) to an end client, perhaps with some sort of protective encapsulation for the memories provided. Inclusion of termbases and LiveDocs corpora in future versions of the tool could also prove interesting. memoQ could become a reference information packaging platform to create additional communication services for our clients. There are interesting possibilities for mobile applications here as well. But in the meantime I'll settle for the modest improvements in the bullet points above.
