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.
