Hello, memoQ 10.4!

...and hello, memoQ AGT! We are introducing memoQ 10.4 which includes improvements to AIQE and the in-country review tool as well as new features and tweaks based on our users’ feedback and requests.

Improvements to AIQE: Faster and more efficient MTPE processes, enhanced automation opportunities

AIQE has become more advanced. We have added auto-selection, pre-translate auto-confirm options, and AIQE match rates are now displayed on the grid.

Pre-translate auto-confirm action with MT & AIQE

This is one of the most important features of AIQE. Thanks to the auto-confirm function, you can simplify and automate your translation workflow and skip unnecessary steps when using machine translation in memoQ. This is similar to how translations are handled through TMs since AIQE provides quality attributes similar to the match rate of the TM.

Implementing the AIQE into the auto-confirm functions of the pre-translate function enables fully automated translations with MT & TM translations having the quality assured.


Auto selection of MT engines in pre-translate with AIQE

Until now, the matches during the pre-translation of a document could come from translation memories, LiveDocs, or a selected machine translation engine.

But how to select the right MT engine for your document/project/client? From now on, AIQE can choose the best translation from different engines on the fly during pre-translation. You can run a pre-translation with multiple engines and let AIQE pick the best translation segment-by-segment.


Display & record AIQE as "match rate" in .XLIFF and on the translation grid

Previously, when working with AIQE within memoQ, match rates of machine translation had only been displayed in the translation results.

With the AIQE improvements in memoQ 10.4, match rates will also be displayed on the translation grid itself. The match rate reflects the accuracy of the translation according to AIQE, and it is shown in parentheses, indicating that the match comes from a machine translation engine.

The match rate will also show up in the .XLIFF file associated with the project. This enables the user to see which MT engines the matches come from, and which one performed better in the given document. This feature is especially useful when evaluating machine translation engines.

memoQ Server Backup: Run Database Backup Parallel to File Backup

memoQ’s backup tool has just become more convenient by allowing parallel database backup and file backup.

The memoQ server backup tool’s performance has been further improved. So far, files and databases could only be backed up separately. From memoQ 10.4 on, you can run your database backup parallel to the file backup.

Improvements to the In-country Review Tool

In response to our customer’s feedback, the In-country review is further enhanced with some powerful new features.


The project manager can now use the Quality Assurance section of the “Configure in-country review” dialog so that they can enable and configure QA check (i.e., display issues) for the ICR user in the ICR tool, and also prevent the ICR user from delivering the document if it contains errors. With this new functionality, the PM can also define QA categories in which issues are shown to the ICR user.

In addition to the Terms and Comments tabs on the sidebar of the ICR tool, the Issues tab is now visible to the in-country reviewer, displaying warnings and errors and allowing the user to focus on specific issues and correct them in the corresponding row on the translation grid.

  • By default, the issues are grouped by rows, and all issues (i.e., warnings and errors) are shown.
  • The user can group issues by issue types (i.e., the QA categories set by the PM) and show only errors or warnings on the screen.
  • The user can hide or show ignored warnings.
  • Active warnings can be ignored by the user, and ignored warnings can be restored to active warnings (errors cannot be ignored as usual).
  • Errors cannot be ignored but the ICR user can deliver the document even with errors if the appropriate setting on the PM configuration dialog permits.

Issues are also communicated at the end of each row of the grid, always showing the most severe issue category found in the row. So, if you have warnings and errors in a row, only the error icon is displayed


Filter panel

Using the filter (funnel) icon on the toolbar, the ICR user can filter the document’s rows, allowing them to filter for rows containing the search phrase:

  • In the source or target language
  • Including or excluding locked rows
  • In all rows/in rows with their own comments/in rows with their changes.



The preview of the translation document can be displayed or hidden using the preview icon in the document header. The preview and the translation grid are in sync, so clicking in a row on the translation grid will frame the same content in the preview and vice versa.


ICR context menu for project managers in the desktop client

Project managers using the desktop client now have an “In-Country Review (ICR)” context menu for ICR assignments to access the following 3 options:

  • Open the document in read-only mode in the ICR tool
  • Copy the URL of the document to the clipboard
  • Edit the ICR configuration.

Other features and improvements

We have included some smaller features and improvements based on our users’ feedback and requests.

Placeholder {document_summary} to be used in e-mail templates regarding project, document assignment, and distribution

Extend the {affected_documents} section with placeholders for the number and target language of the affected documents in the E-mail template “Document assigned to subvendor group” and “Project distributed with subvendor group assignments.”


Improve the speed of fragment assembly during pre-translation with TM+

The function has become significantly faster with TM+ (compared to classic translation memories).


Removing the TransPDF import option from memoQ

Because of the discontinuation of the TransPDF service, it is not supported by memoQ as a PDF import option anymore.


XPath2.0 support in Multilingual XML filter

Multilingual XML filter now supports XPath 2.0 when configuring import rules.


Edit the short code interpretation through a regex

This feature is connected to the WPML filter. From now on, you can configure what is interpreted as a short code with a regular expression.


Add Azure B2C template to the OIDC Server

A new IDP is added as a supported provider for SSO. Indeed, we are open to any IDPs working with OIDC, but the template allows for quicker implementation as of memoQ 10.4.


Add in-place translation functionality to multilingual XML

Besides the Excel filter, you can now use in-place translation when using the Multilingual XML filter.


Cascading after multilingual filters

We have added additional filter configuration options to cascade these filters: XLIFF 1, XLIFF 2, Multilingual Delimited Text filter, Multilingual XML filter.
