Hello, memoQ 8.3!

memoQ 8.3 brings improvements in terminology, content management system integration, translation work, filters in memoQ, and memoQWeb.



Proper terminology management is not only essential to guarantee translation quality; it also affects productivity just as much as translation memory does, and it is equally important.

Term base entry details pane

We have redesigned the memoQ term base entry details pane (under the translation results pane) for a better user experience. We have also included new commands that will help you work with your terms more effectively:

• Update term example from active segment

• Update term example from Concordance

These two options will provide a quick and easy way for users to add context to the source and target terms of an entry.

Managing term extraction

memoQ 8.3 improves the way you start and manage term extraction sessions:

• Session start/continue dialog

• Automatic numbering of sessions initiated on the same day

• Clickable and fully visible column headers with tooltips

• Two scrolling options, similar to the ones in the translation grid

• “Go to next” options, just like in the translations editor

Term extraction editor

Improvements to the term extraction editor include:

A new column to arrange candidates by length of characters in a term

Example sentences can be added for both source and target terms directly from the list of occurrences during the term extraction session

Statistics to estimate the amount of work before and during a term extraction session, which can be exported to HTML

Warning users when they are about to accept duplicate terms during a term extraction session

New export option

Easily export all accepted terms and their example sentences to an Excel workbook to enable your clients or terminologists validate terminology outside memoQ.

Exporting to a memoQ term base

You can now export example sentences along with the extracted terms to a memoQ term base.

Editable and customizable QTerm glossary

QTerm now offers a brand new glossary option:

You can select any entry, language or term level metadata to include in your glossary

The results can be downloaded in RTF or PDF format

The RTF glossary is fully editable and customizable, with new QTerm styles defined to speed up your work.

QTerm Terminology management

memoQ 8.3 improves the way you can manage terminology in QTerm: • Delete entries in batch instead of just terms in a specific language pair • Use the pipe characters to indicate the stem of the term on the “browse term base” screen, just like in memoQ term bases

Export & import in QTerm

Import–export is also enhanced in QTerm:​

Export QTerm term bases to Excel (including metadata selection)

Import from Excel to QTerm to support external validation processes and facilitate integration with external terminology sources.

All metadata are now retained when you export or import a TBX file.

QTerm – better user experience

QTerm has also improved on user experience

Additional sorting options in the list of term bases: you can sort them by languages and the number of entries

Select/clear all checkboxes for these actions: delete entries, merge, search for text in specific entries etc

Options to display more items on a single page to support batch operations (previously you could only select up to 100 entries)

QTerm term bases can now be renamed

memoQ Intergrations


By improving our integration with content management systems and other third-party technology, we continue to create a more open and reliable translation environment.

The memoQ WordPress Connector

Automate localization of WordPress sites using the memoQ WordPress Connector.

The memoQ connector for WordPress offers a fully automated translation workflow between WPML (WordPress Plugin) and memoQ server. It provides an easy way to manage multilingual web content and translation projects within WordPress.

If you have a multilingual WordPress website, you can use this connector to automate your translation workflow. In order to get started, you will need to own a memoQ server license or find a translation agency working with memoQ server.

Note: this solution requires an up-to-date WPML plugin on the WordPress site. WPML is a commercial plugin. See more information about the plugin here.

If you would like to test-drive the WordPress connector, we will help you get started! Contact us clicking the button below.


Document import and export

Getting documents into and out of memoQ might not sound like the most exciting topic, but these capabilities are essential and can make or break a translation tool.

Multilingual Excel: formatting

Enhances the handling of format and content in multilingual files when the source format is XLSX. If an XLSX file has formatting inside cells, the Multilingual Excel filter will now display the formatting as inline tags.

XLIFF: mrk tags

The XLIFF filter can now be configured to import mrk tags inside segments and display them as inline

DOCX, XLSX: ignore local formatting to facilitate chained import

You will be able to chain other filters after DOCX and XLSX files even when the files contain problematic formatting. These two filters can now remove any formatting-related inline tags that do not span a full paragraph. Other inline tags (tables, footnotes, etc...) will remain in the document.

JSON: translatable, comment, context import

Until now, options for the JSON filter were restricted to selecting the encoding and configuring a simple context. With the enhanced JSON filter in memoQ 8.3, you will be able to:

mark content as translatable or non-translatable in a flexible way

import comment and context from the values in the file, not just the key structure

Translation work

Even though memoQ 8.3 focuses on terminology, we have also been working on some other improvements to boost productivity for translation work.

Online Muse

With memoQ 8.3, Muses can be shared on memoQ servers. A Muse can now be an online heavy resource; it is not restricted to one’s local copy of memoQ. With online Muses, you can do the following:

Manage the list of Muses

Assign Muses to online projects

Assign online Muses to local projects

Search for text in a Muse

Train an online Muse, the same way as in the memoQ desktop program. Training will happen on the memoQ server

Restore selected version button

A new “Restore selected version” button is now available on the Row history window. You can easily restore an earlier version of a row in a document.

Comments on reviews

With memoQ 8.3, translators can now comment on rows confirmed in the “Reviewer 2” role.

This is useful when a translator is a field expert, while the reviewer is a native speaker who is editing the translation only. If the translator notices a factual or technical error in a segment confirmed by “Reviewer 2”, they can warn “Reviewer 2” or the project manager to take corrective action before the translation is delivered to the client.

High DPI for 8.3

We are continually working to ensure that users with very high-resolution displays receive a positive user experience without user interface issues.



We are working to make memoQWeb as competitive as the memoQ desktop application. Check the new functionality and expect more radical improvements for next year!

No more paging in WebTrans

When you edit a large document, you do not need “page” anymore. You can freely scroll through the document, just like in the memoQ desktop program.

Filtering and sorting in WebTrans

Just like memoQ, WebTrans now also features filtering and sorting of translation document segments.
