Project management

Productivity

  • Smoother Content Connector installation and Git Connector connection management, updated XML and XLIFF 2 filters: check out some of the tweaks we’ve made to memoQ for a more streamlined experience.
  • BeLazy is a technology platform that automates the receipt, management, and delivery of translation projects. It provides ready-made integrations between systems—vendor portals, business management systems, and translation management systems—to help language service providers streamline their translation workflows. The new integration allows users to manage work from both the administrator and linguist views. This means that you can fetch projects from your customer’s memoQ server or cloud and also from your own.
  • Highly intuitive and customizable, monday.com is used by 100,000-plus businesses to manage tasks, projects, and teamwork with ease and confidence. Use memoQ’s new connector to create both data and workflow integration between memoQ and monday.com boards and to manage and track complex translation workflows without leaving monday.com.
  • Connect memoQ to AEM so you can set up and manage the translation of websites and digital assets from Adobe Experience Manager, Adobe’s leading content and digital asset management system. And do so through the very AEM workspace you use for day-to-day asset management activities while keeping the same user experience, thanks to memoQ’s AEM-native plugin.
  • Regexes, short for regular expressions, are a powerful means of finding and replacing character sequences in text and come in handy whenever memoQ users need to search for strings that match a certain description (for example, dates in MM/DD/YYYY format) rather than a specific word. Regexes can be accessed in Find and replace and the translation editor’s filtering controls and can be used to define segmentation, auto-translation, or Regex Tagger rules.
  • Translation automation is now available for content stored in Jira, one of the world's most popular issue and project tracking tools, through memoQ’s new Jira connector. The connector allows seamless integration between the system that stores the source content and the translation management system, eliminating the need for manual interference throughout the entire round-trip translation workflow.
  • Having a hard time managing and translating content during localization projects? Gridly and memoQ have joined forces to offer a more streamlined way to track content updates and changes across multiple languages and to improve collaboration across project teams, roles, and vendors. Say goodbye to missed translation assignments, scattered data, error-prone email attachments, and Slack messages, as well as time-wasting file exports and imports.
  • Antidote, the market-leading writing assistance software suite for English and French, is now available for integration with memoQ's web-based translation environment, WebTrans. Including over 110,000 words, 16,000 targeted errors, and 1,500,000 synonyms, the solution is widely used by linguists in French-speaking countries and trusted for spot-on language, typography, and style diagnostics.
  • Users who were signing in to their memoQ workspace with their Windows Active Directory accounts can now use OpenID Connect and multi-factor authentication for a quicker and safer login process.
  • memoQ 9.7 comes with a new Toggle case button that allows users to change the letter case of one or multiple term base entries in a selected language with a single click.
  • Google Cloud Translation API Advanced offers fast, dynamic translation between thousands of language pairs and comes with powerful customization features, such as custom neural machine translation model selection and glossary support. Thanks to our new Google MT plugin debuting in memoQ 9.7, the solution can now be integrated with memoQ for more accurate, better-quality results in domain-specific translations.
