Shortcuts memoQ Translator Pro

The list below is a revised version of the shortcut keys in memoQ Translator Pro 2014. The shortcuts for inserting special characters and diacritics are excluded. I prefer to use an external application called TransTools Utilities to assist me with inserting these characters. memoQ enables you to invoke a list of diacritics, special characters and symbols by hitting keystroke combination Ctrl+Shift+I.

Shown below are the default shortcut key combinations. To change the existing keyboard shortcut keys go to Tools/Options/Keyboard Shortcuts.
