This article provides a step-by-step guide to creating your first project in Memsource.
Google Chrome, Firefox or Safari browsers are recommended. The two most recent versions of Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer are supported.
Once you sign in to your account, you will automatically be directed to the Projects page which is a list of all projects created in your account. If this is your first project, the list will be empty.
Step 2: To create a project, you can either click on the New button on the Projects page or you can use the (+) sign in the left-hand navigation panel. This will open the project creation screen.
Step 3: Fill in the following mandatory fields:
- Source Language - only one source language can be selected per project
- Target Language - there can be an unlimited number of target languages in a project
The Settings section includes other options (e.g. Machine Translation, Access and Security, Financials or Workflow Steps) that you can adjust if necessary.
Most of the project settings can be adjusted later except for:
- Source Language
- Target Language(s) - languages can be added, but not removed
- Workflow steps - steps can be added, but not removed
Step 4: Click the Create button below the Settings to complete the setup of your project and create it.
Step 5: If you already have a translation memory (TM) or term base (TB), you can attach them to your project on the project page by clicking the Select button next to Translation Memories or Term Bases. To create a new TM or TB, click the Create New button. (See the screenshot below.) To find out more about creating and using TMs and TBs see Lesson 2 and Lesson 3.
Step 6: To add new files for translation to the project, select the New button. You will find out more about this in Lesson 5.
To see a demo of this process, watch the video below.
