Introduction

Intended audience
Translators
More and more companies are using Rigi technology to localize their dynamic applications in context.

Rigi key features
  1. Translate in context (WYSIWYG): select a text in the memoQ editor will automatically load a preview and highlight the selected text. 
    The other way around works too: selecting a text in the preview will select the segment in your memoQ editor.
  2. Process review comments from language testers: select a comment that a language tester made, will show the preview with the text highlighted.
    It will also select the segment in your memoQ editor, where you can copy the suggested translation.


The Rigi Viewer for memoQ supports in-context editing of dynamic software applications.


Instructions

  1. Install the Rigi Viewer for memoQ, including the Rigi filter (this is a one-time action).

  2. Open the Rigi XML file in memoQ (make sure that you have selected the Rigi Preview filter).
    First time installation - Rigi viewer application
    The plugin for memoQ requires that the Rigi.Viewer application is installed.
    If that viewer is not installed on your computer, you will get the following dialog:



    Click Download Rigi Viewer and follow the steps.

    Note: You can download the installer for the Rigi Viewer application here.

    The Rigi.Viewer will automatically open (except if you configured not to open it automatically).
    If the Rigi.Viewer does not open, then double click the link on the Desktop.

    Blank screen in the Rigi Viewer?
    If you start the Rigi Viewer for the first time, you may see a blank screen.
    In that case, try to select another segment in the memoQ editor.



  3. The usage of the online editor is explained in this article.
