Jobs in a Project

  • The maximum number of jobs that can be in a project (all target languages) is 50,000, including jobs imported via API.

  • The maximum number of segments which Memsource Editor for Web can open (applicable to both a single file and joined files) is 40,000 segments.

Opening a large number of files at one time can have a negative impact on performance or cause difficulties with loading all files. To avoid problems, it is recommended that you do not join more than 100 files or more than 40,000 segments.

Default analysis

The results of a default analysis of files that contain more than 100,000 segments are only approximate.

  • Office Open XML Word documents (default format of MS Office documents since 2007) with any XML zipped inside larger than 20 MB, will not generate in-context preview. This restriction also applies to older formats as Memsource converts them to Office Open XML upon import.

  • In-context preview cannot be generated for .pptx or .docx files of over 100 MB.
