Compatibility between memoQ 2013 R2 and memoQ 2014

Title: Compatibility between memoQ 2013 R2 and memoQ 2014

Description:    memoQ 2014 is a new major version introducing new functionality.

Resources can be used the same way in memoQ 2013 R2 and memoQ 2014. There is one new type of light resource: project templates. Project templates are available in memoQ 2014 only, not in earlier memoQ versions.

memoQ 2014 also introduces the concept of working and master TMs. The TM which you had set as your primary one in memoQ 2013 R2 is automatically set as working TM in memoQ 2014 after you open your project in memoQ 104. 

When you open a project that was created in memoQ 2013 R2, memoQ asks you to migrate the project. A migrated project is shown with [V70] in your Dashboard.

For translators, memoQ 2014 is compatible with memoQ server 2013 R2 servers: you can check out an online project, and work on it. 

For project management, memoQ 2014 is not compatible  with memoQ server 2013 R2. However, you can also use the project management edition of memoQ 2014 to translate against a memoQ 2013 R2 server.

  1. You can use a memoQ 2013 R2 client to connect to a memoQ 2014 server to check out an online project and synchronize it.
  2. You can use a memoQ 2014 client to connect to a memoQ 2013 R2 server to check out an online project and synchronize it.
  3. If you check out an online project as a package project in memoQ 2014, you will not be able to open it in memoQ 2013 R2.
  4. memoQ 2014 projects contains a lot more information about projects than memoQ 2013 R2. For example, you can use a project template in memoQ 2014 to create a project. If you open a memoQ 2014 project in memoQ 2013 R2, it will work, but the project will be truncated and become unusable in memoQ 2014. This means that even if it is possible to open a memoQ 2014 project in memoQ 2013 R2, we strongly advise against it.
  5. Important: Creating a project in memoQ 2013 R2, and then opening it in memoQ 2014 will work, but if you first open a project in memoQ 2014, then you open it in memoQ 2013 R2, you won’t be able to open it again in memoQ 2014.
  6.  Local projects can be opened in memoQ 2013 R2 and memoQ 2014 seamlessly, no matter which version was used to create them.
