  • Managing your projects on Language Terminal and reporting on your finances
    Got tired of having to register all your jobs in Microsoft Excel or similar tools? Language Terminal provides your easy way to manage all your projects, quotations, see who paid and who did not, get reports on how much a certain customer owes you or how much money you made over a period of time with one type of activity. Just enable the Language Terminal project management within memoQ.

    You can create a Language Terminal project within memoQ by creating a new project and selecting the Create Language Terminal entry for this project checkbox. This will change the field in this Create New Project dialog box so that Client and Subject fields are populated from data from your Language Terminal profile. When you have created this project it will be available within memoQ as usual and also published on Language Terminal. You can directly create a quote when you upload the statistics to Language Terminal and match your pricing matrix to the quote, and send it over to customers in an email.
  • Backing up and restoring projects and transferring projects between computers
    Language Terminal can be your cloud-based project archive.

Similarly, you can restore the project later on the same or another computer by clicking Restore from backup. After you choose Language Terminal you will be given a list of your backed up projects in the cloud.
  • Translating and previewing InDesign INDD documents
    The filter for InDesign within memoQ is a web service which sends the InDesign file to Language Terminal, Language Terminal uses InDesign to convert this to XLIFF and the XLIFF file is opened within memoQ. The translated InDesign file is then created from this XLIFF file. It is also possible to view a preview of the InDesign file.
  • Integration with memoQ server
    Turn your memoQ server into a full-fledged, yet simple TMS with business management functionalities. The memoQ server integration with Language Terminal is aimed at enterprise customers and smaller translation companies who have no need or budget for a sophisticated translation management system, but want to keep track of their costs and vendors.
  • Vendor and price matrix management
    When you set up your vendors in Language Terminal, you can find them if they are already Language Terminal users or invite them to join Language Terminal. Even if they don't join, you are able to track the projects assigned to them within your instance of Language Terminal. Vendors don't need to remember many user names and passwords: through the single sign-on, they can log in to your memoQ server with their Language Terminal account and get the projects. They can also quote jobs for you and you can accept quotations.
