Memsource Editor

Tracking Changes

There are a few methods for tracking changes in the editor.

The Track Changes Filter

To display segments that were changed between your current workflow step and the previous ones with the Show Changes filter, follow these steps:

  1. Click the arrow Menu_Triangle.png by the Filter Source Text field.

    The filter options are presented.

  2. Click Show Changes in Workflow Step.

    The Show Changes in Workflow Step options are displayed.

  3. Select changes to be displayed and click the arrow Close_arrow.png to close filter options.

    Selected changes are displayed.

The Changes Pane

The Changes Pane at the bottom right displays all translation versions that are available in other workflow steps.

To override the existing translation with another version, double-click on the preferred translation version.

Track Changes in External Text Editors

Convert MXLIFF files in to bilingual DOCX files and open them in a preferred text editor to use their native compare/track changes features. Save the files and re-import them back into Memsource.

The Compare Analysis

The Compare Analysis is available in projects with workflow steps and will compare the amount of changes between files being worked on and other workflow steps.

Changes Between MT Output and Target

Select a machine translation (MT) entry in the CAT Panel to display changes between the initial MT output and the final, post-edited translation for confirmed segments.

Export Workflow Changes

In addition to tracking changes in the editor, changes can be reviewed in a generated report. Access to this report cannot be shared, but it can be downloaded as a file in HTML format.

To generate the report, follow these steps:

  1. From a project page, select the required job.

  2. Click on Tools and select Export Workflow Changes.

    The report is displayed in a new browser tab.
