  3. Select files you want to analyse using checkboxes to the left of the file names.
  4. Click File Actions > Get CAT Analysis.

New CAT analysis files get added to the files list:

  • If remote Bilingual Documents were selected, the analysis includes only the language pairs of the selected files.

Analyses come in a format configured in your memoQ integration, usually it’s .csv.

Note

Get CAT Analysis option is not available if:

  • There is no linked project in the CAT tool
  • No remote Bilingual Documents have been created in the CAT tool
  • No files have been selected
  • Files other than Bilingual Document or Source Document have been selected.

Sources for CAT analyses

In Smart Projects you can get CAT analyses for files categorized as a ‘Source Document’ or a remote ‘Bilingual Document’. Technically, getting CAT analyses for files means getting the analyses for the corresponding remote Bilingual Documents created in the CAT tool. You cannot analyse files that have not been converted to remote Bilingual Documents in the CAT tool.

Tools for CAT analyses

The files are analyzed with remote Translation Memories (TMs) available in the CAT tool project. This means that the TMs have to be provided either directly in the CAT tool or in a memoQ Project Template. Otherwise, no TM is used for the analysis. Currently,

Translation Memories cannot be imported to the CAT tool through the integration.
