Memsource Editor

Comments and Conversations

While the Memsource Editor (Desktop and Web) is connected to the server, users can add comments and create conversation threads about an entire segment (using per-segment comments) or a section of a segment (using in-line comments).

The Conversation feature allows cooperation between all active users involved in a job (Linguists, Project Managers, Guests). A comment made in one step is visible across all steps providing communication throughout the workflow. Project managers have the ability to delete and edit comments made by Linguist users and are time stamped when edited.

Conversations can be exported to Bilingual DOCX and opened in a DOCX editor. Conversations in Bilingual DOCX are read-only and any changes made in the file will not be imported back to the Memsource job. LQA values are not exported to the Bilingual DOCX.

Add a Comment

To add a comment or start a conversation about a segment or a selected text, follow these steps:

  1. Select a segment.

    • To comment about a particular piece of text (an in-line comment), select the text inside the selected segment.

  2. Click the speech bubble icon speech_bubble.png next to the segment or right-click the selected text and select Comment. The keyboard shortcut is Ctrl+Shift+M.

    The Comments tab opens and selected text is presented.

  3. Enter comment in text field and click Comment to save.

    Segments with Comments are identified with a blue speech bubble icon speech_bubble_blue.png.

Add a Reply

Replies can be added to any posted comment. Replies are indented to help navigate the conversation. Replies can not be added as in-line comments.

To add a reply, follow these steps:

  1. Click Reply after any comment in the Comments tab. 

    A text field opens for the reply.

  2. Enter reply text and click Add reply.

    The reply is added to the conversation.

Editing Conversations

Editing and deletion options for comments are in the 3-dot menu vertical_dot.png in the Comments tab.

Resolving Conversations

The comments in the tab can be filtered Filter.png for a selected segment and if resolved. Once comments in a conversation have been addressed, mark the conversation as resolved. If the project manager has specified that comments are part of Quality Assurance checks and are unresolved, they are displayed in QA warnings.
