I have this minor issue using Trados/MemoQ. You start translating at the top of the page. Then, as you translate, you move to the very bottom segment. Then, as you move past the first page, it stays at the bottom. My question is – is there a way to adjust the program so that you start at say the second or third segment from the bottom? It seems better if you want to keep an oversight over what's to come.

Pin current segment to middle May 30, 2017

Hi Halvor. What you want is what Trados Studio does. memoQ does it differently: it keeps the current segment in the middle of the screen at all times. Here's how:


  1. Go to the View tab.

  2. In the Layout group of buttons, press the Active Row button.

  3. Select In the Middle (Left/Right) or In the Middle (Horizontal)

Hi Halvor.

In Studio, go to File/Options/Editor, then select Center active row.

Thanks, Epameinondas! May 30, 2017

Great, MemoQ looks so much better now.

I found the function for Trados, it's under Options/Editor/Side-by-Side editor, when you tick off the Active center row box. I think yours was activated already.

Edit: Thanks, Sam. You guys are fast, need to update and read replies before I post replies next time!
