What is Slate Desktop?

Slate Desktop by Precision Translation Tools is an application suite that enables translators, teams and agencies to create, manage, deploy, measure and evaluate statistical translation engines and the translated content. The software is available across multiple operating systems, personal computers and server-based computers.

How it works with memoQ?

memoQ’s Slate Desktop plugin works like other plugins for MT service providers, but the translation engine runs on your computer where your work is secure because it never leaves your computer. memoQ sends text to your translation engine one segment at a time. memoQ displays the results in the translation results and you decide whether or not to use it.

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

To use Slate Desktop with memoQ, you must install Slate Desktop on your computer. From Slate Desktop’s dashboard, you convert your translation memories into one or more a translation engines for your language pair(s). Then you enable and configure memoQ’s Slate Desktop plugin to use one of your engines via memoQ’s Options | Machine translation tab.
