Lightening the load: leveraging multiple resources at once
Translation memories (TMs), term bases (TBs), LiveDocs – these resources are truly the lifeblood of localization teams. Every day, memoQ users access, create, exchange, import, archive and/or delete hundreds, even thousands, of these resources. Keeping track of them all can be tricky. Now, thanks to the latest enhancements, those resources can be batched to make life a little easier.
With memoQ 9.4, you can:
- Add/remove multiple LiveDocs corpora in projects.
- Provide “Can delete resources in batch” permission to user groups in the Server Administrator (desktop and browser).
- Delete (and optionally export) multiple TMs, TBs and LiveDocs corpora.
- Export multiple TMs, TBs and LiveDocs corpora in batches.
- Import multiple TM files.
- “Select All” via a new context menu option.
Hustle, not hassle: improvements to MT plugins
Enterprises and language service providers are increasingly relying on machine translation (MT), especially for large projects. That’s why memoQ is always looking for ways to improve the performance and reliability of MT plugins.
Here are some of the enhancements in memoQ 9.4:
Microsoft MT plugin. Segment exclusion is now possible.
Intento MT plugin. Not only have issues with translating tagged documents been fixed, but glitches with Smart Routing have also been eliminated. Plus, this plugin now supports of HTTP proxies for those users with specific security requirements or network restrictions.
Integrating private MT plugins has been made much easier.
Tilde. A small but important update has been made in code handling, mostly related to Norwegian.
No more “zombies” – Resource Console gets a revamp
Maintaining and keeping track of resources can be exhausting. Is that translation memory (TM) still in use? Has that term base (TB) been modified recently? Which ones are “zombies”, no longer used and just taking up valuable server space?
Questions like these are now a thing of the past, thanks to a revamped Resource Console. Everything’s cleaner, crisper, smarter.
New filter fields, new sorting options and new columns for displaying metadata mean you always have an overview of your resources.
New assignment workflow with memoQWeb
Your project deadline just got changed. Again.
But fear not – with memoQ 9.4, you’re prepared for the unexpected. You can now select multiple documents on the Translations page in memoQWeb and change the assignees, deadlines and statuses all in one go. Easy.
Content Connector: integration is everything
Content Connector is all about integration. What is more, it can be customizable integration. The list of what can be integrated is almost endless: Content Management Systems (CMS), Product Information Systems (PIMS), Component Content Management Systems (CCMS), Marketing Automatic Systems, among many, many others. With the proficient help of memoQ's Business Service Team, we can custom tailor integrations to your specific needs.
In memoQ 9.4, we are making changes to Content Connector in order to further enhance the work of memoQ's Business Service Team. These modifications aim to empower the team to provide our customers with the right solutions for their industry or team specific, unique requirements. The modified Content Connector will enable easier development and wider functionality for automated integrations with Content Management Systems.
To this end, the deployment of Content Connector connectors will be independent of the memoQ release cycle and its licensing protocols. What that means is the memoQ Business Services team will have a lot more options at its fingertips to help users looking for integrations.
With Protemos, integration is just one click away
We are excited to share the news that Protemos and memoQ are now integrated.
This is something that many users have requested and it will ensure the smooth transfer of projects between the two systems. Whereas users used to have to spend a lot of time and effort on manual copy-and-pasting, this new integration streamlines the whole process.
With one click, Protemos projects can be reproduced with the details about language pairs, deadlines, client info and files from memoQ. It works the other way, too, with users able to pull Protemos projects into memoQ simply and seamlessly.
What’s even more compelling about this integration is just how easy it is to use and to set up. It takes just a few minutes, and no special training is required.
Notable features worth mentioning: Trados Studio TM direct import and Grammar Check
Here are a couple of additional enhancements you’ll find in memoQ 9.4:
Grammar check: ignore once. Previously, this feature skipped an entire segment, not just a single instance of an error. This update is surely going to be a major help to anyone who needs to run grammar checker in memoQ.
Trados Studio TM direct import. SDLTM files can now be directly imported into memoQ TMs even outside packages, making life a little easier for users collaborating with partners who use SDL Trados.
As we strive to further develop memoQ for the specific needs of various industries, we would like to invite our users to partake in our Usage Data Collection, which we are expanding in memoQ 9.4.
With the full consent of users, and on an opt-in basis, of course, we will be able to collect demographic data. By doing this, we will be able to get a better handle on user needs and concerns and provide even more useful and relevant product updates.
