It is available in all Memsource editions.
Both Memsource Editors support real-time in-context preview for the following file types:
- Microsoft Word
- Microsoft Excel (including Multilingual)
- Microsoft Powerpoint
- Google Docs, Sheets and Slides
- XML with style sheets (including Multilingual)
If a file type is not supported, the following notification will appear: "In-context preview was not generated". If this happens, you can download a preview of the translated file by going to the Document menu and clicking Preview Translation.
The In-Context Preview can be found under Tools – Preview in the Memsource Editor menu bar, where users have the option to activate or deactivate the preview window. There is also the option of viewing either the source text (showing the original text unchanged while translating) or the target one.
Users can navigate from the translation grid to the preview window and the other way around. When a user clicks on a segment to be translated, the respective text in the preview window is highlighted showing the position of the translated segment within the document. Additionally, when a user clicks on a text within the preview, the translation grid jumps to the respective segment to be edited straight away. The preview also helps while running the QA – if a user clicks on a warning, it navigates them to the position within the document.
Preview for InDesign Files
Memsource offers a PDF based preview for InDesign files.
This is not a live in-context preview, but thanks to this feature users are able to generate PDF based preview of the translated IDML or INDD files.
In order to generate the preview, navigate to Document in your Memsource Editor, then Preview Translation.
While for all other formats this functionality will generate the preview file in its original format, if the document under translation is IDML or INDD, Memsource will generate and open a PDF preview.
