What is Google MT?

Google Machine Translation or Google Translate API is probably the best known machine translation service available. Their service is free but there is an API call charge for using it for large amount of text translated or using it within another tool. Google’s main business is providing search results and some concern has been expressed that documents which have been submitted through the MT engine could be searched and found.

How it works with memoQ?

memoQ sends text to this machine translation engine one segment at a time. The results are then displayed in the translation results and the translator can decide whether or not to use it.

What do you do if you want to use this service?

memoQ is integrated with Google MT by means of an API key which you get from them. You enter the key when you are enabling the plugin in Options | Machine translation.
