How do I get the fuzzy matching for term bases created in memoQ 6.2?


When you want to use your term bases in memoQ 2013 which were created in memoQ 6.2 or earlier, the term defaults will have the Yes, No, Custom and 50% minimum matching. There is no need to migrate your term bases from memoQ 6.2.

For all newly entered terms in this term base, you can choose from the new options: Fuzzy, Exact (former No), Custom (pipes, asterisk) and 50% prefix (former 50% minimum).

How to:   

When you import a CSV file created in memoQ 6.2 and exported from memoQ 6.2, it will contain the Yes, No, 50% minimum and Custom matching values. In order to globally change e.g. the Yes value to Fuzzy for all your terms and to use the new Fuzzy matching for all terms, you can do the following:

  1.   Export your CSV file from memoQ 6.2, and open the CSV file in Excel.
  2.   Search for HalfPrefix, and replace it with Prefix.  You can replace all occurrences globally. Then the matching will change for all terms in all target languages. You can also only replace the value for one specific language column in the CSV file. Save the CSV file.
  3.   Import the CSV file into a new term base in memoQ 2013. If you replaced all halfPrefix values with Prefix, then all the terms will have the Fuzzy matching.
