In Memsource, Projects are where the main components of a translation project (jobs, translation memories, and term bases) are held together. Before files can be assigned for translation, they must be assigned to and contained within a project.
Opening a project presents it in a project page. A project can be saved as a template or cloned from the Save as menu.
The project page features a dashboard followed by tables of associated project attributes:
The Project Dashboard provides statistics for a specific project and is divided into two sections:
The overview of job statuses and issues across all workflow steps
The overview of job statuses and issues in individual workflow steps and language combinations.
If a warning is present in the project, a box appears in the respective section of Individual Progress. Click on the box to receive a breakdown of the issues.
The jobs table lists all jobs associated with a project and tools for working with jobs. From the jobs table, jobs can be added, edited, downloaded (original, the completed translation, bilingual or final files), analyzed, pre-translated, and deleted along with other tools.
Hovering over underlined indicators and icons in the table provides more information about the job such as progress, additions and wordcounts.
The table can be filtered and the columns can be customized.
Any type of file can be added as a reference with a 1Gb size limit or just type a note in the text field.
If a project contains references, Linguist will receive a notification when they open the editor. Reference files themselves are available at the bottom section of the Project page.
To create a project, follow these steps:
From the New.page, click
Provide a name, business information, languages and any other required information.
Target language can be removed only before importing jobs, TMs or TBs that are associated with that language, including jobs in the Recycle Bin.

When creating a project without a template, settings (such as the default file import settings) will be based on the Project Settings section of the Setup page. Subsequent changes in a Project Template or the main Setup page will not affect the settings of your existing projects.
