Hello, memoQ 10.6!

memoQ 10.6 is now released with new features for both freelancers and translation teams! We are introducing new language options (both for the UI and language pairs), updates and customization options for memoQ AGT, and other smaller improvements.

Four Indigenous languages from Canada now available

Four indigenous languages from Canada have been added to memoQ.

A diverse array of Indigenous languages is spoken in Canada. We’ve added four of them into memoQ: Inuktitut, Cree, Ojibwe, and Mi’kmaq. In addition to the Latin script versions, we included the syllabic versions for the Inuktitut, Cree, and Ojibwe languages.

Updates to memoQ AGT

Customize translation results generated from memoQ AGT with the new formality configuration and TB prioritization.

Formality configuration 

memoQ AGT now supports changing or clarifying the expected tone of translation. Languages differ in how formality is handled. Some have no differentiation, while others have many levels of formality. As a result, the source language might reflect your intended target language tone. 

The formality setting helps you match precisely your expected formality level, and thanks to using LLM and MT technology, memoQ AGT is especially adept at following your instructions concerning the tone of the target text. 

Prioritize TB results over TM 

When it comes to memoQ AGT, instant domain adaptation provides unmatched quality to your machine-translated texts. memoQ AGT works with the latest domain data generated by a linguistic operation. For example, it utilizes premium quality translations verified in memoQ to provide the machine translation results. 

Occasionally linguistic data (term bases, translation memories, and LiveDocs) are not in sync. One may be more up-to-date than the other, and sometimes, they may even contradict each other. 

Furthermore, LLMs tend to respect the weight of data. If a term appears in both a TB hit and a TM hit, it is the TM hit that eventually affects the outcome. From now on, we are providing a way to control which source of information will take priority when memoQ AGT works with a translation. You can rank TB hits higher than TM or LiveDocs hits through TB prioritization.

Added Formality Setting in Amazon MT

Thanks to the formality setting in Amazon MT, you have more control over the tone and voice of the target text.

Amazon now supports changing the expected tone of translation. Some languages have varying levels of formality, so, the source language might not match the exact tone you intended to use in your target language. The formality setting helps you match precisely your expected level of formality for Amazon MT translations.

Other Features and Improvements

Included are some smaller features and improvements based on our users’ feedback and requests.

In addition to improving machine translation performance during pre-translation, we have also made Chinese (Taiwan) available as a UI language in the desktop app, memoQweb, Customer Portal, and the ICR tool.
