The memoQ Story

The Early Stages

It all started in Hungary in 2004, when three passionate language technologists worked on machine translation and spell checking related projects at a publishing company that issued Microsoft Press Books. During this time, they ventured into collaborative translation, and together with other translators, they managed to translate, review and publish these books within just a few months. This experience led these young visionaries to imagine a new translation technology environment that places collaboration in the center of the scope.


Digital Transformation

The three entrepreneurs started developing the technology they envisioned, which was the core of memoQ, the most advanced translation technology environment as we know it today. It was more than a challenging task as only a few major industry players dominated the market back then. However, they had a clear vision to execute the digital transformation of the translation industry. From the very beginning, memoQ became very popular, especially among translators all over the world. The reason behind this is memoQ was created for translators by translators; the three founders never had to put themselves on a translator’s feet, they knew exactly what translation work was all about. Like no other software back then, memoQ made translating more enjoyable by allowing translators to take delight in their work. As soon as their freshly developed software hit the market, it became very popular globally. The main reason behind memoQ’s success was the founders’ approach as they knew exactly the ins and outs of translation work. Like no other tool at that time, memoQ made translating more enjoyable by allowing translators to take delight in their work


Leading Translation Technology

Since then memoQ has grown to become one of the world’s leading translation environment, and we have added hundreds of loved features that have made translation work easy and simple. Today, with almost 100 employees, we are working hard to continuously improve our software with careful consideration of user needs.
