Hello, memoQ 9.3!

memoQ 9.3 introduces an integration with Amazon MT, new memoQWeb features for project management, a revamped task management interface in memoQWebTrans, additional options to add and remove multiple TBs and TMs to/from a project at once, and more.

memoQ Machine Translation

Machine Translation Integrations Taken to the Next Level

We know how important machine translation (MT) is to you, so for this release we’ve made some additions and enhancements. Amazon is now an available MT plugin and memoQ also provides an interface where terminologies can be uploaded or selected. memoQ 9.3 also introduces a better tag handling with Google MT and Microsoft MT plugins, including the ability to select HTML or XML. 

memoQWeb PM

memoQWeb Functionality Keeps Getting Better

Last year memoQWeb for project managers got a fresh new look. This year it’s getting new features and enhancements: the ability to import XLSX files into term bases, and a live preview where you see importable columns and their meanings in the term base (TB), which means you see the result and can modify settings.

Batch Operations feature

What All our Users Have Been Waiting for: Batch Operations

With memoQ 9.3, we’re making changes that will be a benefit to both freelance translators and project managers. Depending on your individual needs, you will be able to select and add/remove multiple translation memories (TMs) and multiple term bases (TBs) in a project, all at once.  You will also be able to add multiple TMs and TBs to a multilingual project, with memoQ matching them to the right language pairs automatically.

memoQ Webtrans

memoQWebTrans: you are in full control of your tasks

The task management interface of memoQWebTrans has a fresh new look, but the changes go way beyond the cosmetic. You can now enjoy a host of new features, such as sorting, filtering and customized view options. As a major player in the language industry, we’re always looking for ways improve your experience. These new features do just that.

Other features and enhancements

UX and Compatibility: How Small Changes Can Make a Big Difference

Improving everyday user experience and compatibility is key. So, 9.3 features a few small but important enhancements. memoQ 9.3 provides a faster TM & TB listing within the client application’s resource console and project interfaces. We also improved workflows with imported SDLXLIFF and SDLPPX files by enhancing language codes, track changes information and tag handling.

Did you know? All about Rigi integration

We’ve been working with integration partner Rigi for many years now. And like a good wine, that partnership – and the benefits for you – just keep getting better over time. Now you can: 

  • Localize UI text using interactive HTML previews, which will lead to a significant drop in QA issues and related costs. 
  • Perform Advanced Language Acceptance Testing via cloud platform. This lets testers enter comments and suggestions in an interactive environment and gives translators immediate access to issues. 
  • With Live! translators can navigate on live site and make corrections on the fly. 
  • Generate images of full pages or regions in all target languages with just a click of a button.
