Title: memoQ TM Search tool


The memoQ TM Search tool helps you to look up your translation memories for words or phrases outside of memoQ, and copy the contents to the Windows clipboard, and paste the contents in another application.

In order to use the memoQ TM Search tool you need a valid memoQ license on your computer.


When you open the memoQ TM search tool, and you use a TM for your search, and at the same time you want to use the same TM in memoQ, that TM cannot be opened and cannot be used. In the TM list in the Resource Console, it will appear with the orange lightning sign, and when you try to add segments to this TM in memoQ, you will get an error message. Your TM is not corrupted, but you cannot use it in the memoQ TM search tool and in memoQ at the same time. If you open memoQ first, and then want to use the open TMs in the memoQ TM search tool, then these TMs cannot be used in the search. You will get a warning message.

How to:   

  1. Press Ctrl+Shift+Q on your keyboard to start the memoQ TM Search. You can also select the memoQ TM Search from Start > All programs, and then go to memoQ-2013-R2,  and choose memoQ TM Search. The memoQ TM Search dialog appears.
  2. The memoQ TM Search window starts with the last retrieved clipboard entry. The TM lookups are displayed in a table form. If you open the memoQ TM Search tool for the first time, select your TMs for the lookup.
  3. Enter a search phrase in the Search phrase field. Press Enter. Click the Search settings button to change or configure the TMs to search.
  4. Use Ctrl+Shift+C to copy the source to the clipboard, and Ctrl+Alt+C to copy the target to the clipboard. Press Ctrl+V to paste the contents from the clipboard into another application.
