How to find reference material for a task in Memsource

When you work on a translation or revision task in Memsource, there might be some reference material that you should check. :bookmark_tabs: This reference material can help you provide the best possible translation, as it can contain context information, instructions, or other resources. :nerd_face: :ledger:

:arrow_right: If a project contains references, you will receive a notification when you open the task in the Memsource editor (check out how to open a task here).
The notification will appear in a blue box, as you can see in the screenshot below:

To find the reference material, click on the blue paperclip symbol :paperclip: located on the right side of the upper bar. If you hover your mouse over the blue clip, a message will say “Project contains references. View on project page.” as you can see in the following screenshot:

Click on the clip to locate the reference material, available at the bottom section of the Project page. You can select the file and download it to consult the references.

:arrow_right: Not all Memsource tasks have reference material attached. You can check this in Memsource by hovering your mouse over the grey paperclip symbol :paperclip: on the right side of the upper bar. “No references available” will appear, as you can see in this screenshot:

In these cases, you can always check the task page on the TWB Platform. In the Project Description, you can usually find some instructions and resources, as you can see in the example below:
