memoQ is fantastic, an intuitive tool that solves problems!
I have been using CAT tools for about 10 years and have used Wordfast, Trados 2007, Studio 2009, SDLX, Mneme, Deja Vu and Across. memoQ surpasses them all, from the installation which is automatic, to updates, to technical support to its webinars and resource center to its great features (LiveDocs!) and ease of use in general. I recommend my colleagues to download a memoQ trial version and I am sure they will fall for it. Haydée Incicco (two2tango)

No. More than 3 stars
Does not rate more than 3 stars. The desktop software itself remains much the same with all of us known Princeton's. The purported have changer Live is a disappointment. If it's half baked, full of bugs, and less than it's promise. First off, you cannot convey your existing projects to online. Second, it is not like you can work off of any device. Third, the naming convention for the folders is not self explanatory. To summarize, a lot of work will be required to make it truly usable.

Product description

memoQ translator pro: created by translators for translators!

memoQ translator pro is a computer-assisted translation tool which runs on Microsoft Windows and on Mac using Parallels or VMWareFusion. It was envisioned more than 12 years ago by a group of enthusiastic linguists who aimed to develop innovative translation software which increases translator's productivity while being easy to learn and use.

Translation memory

memoQ features a state of the art translation memory which stores your translations and helps you reuse them. The translation memory boosts productivity and consistency throughout your project. With a translation memory in place you will never need to translate the same thing twice.

Term base

memoQ posses an advanced term base for handling terminology. With it, you can extract terms from files and translation memories, import your existing glossaries, combine bilingual glossaries into multilingual ones, or easily add new terminology as you translate.

The Muse

Muses offer automatic suggestions for target terms as you type. Muses are “trained” by analyzing content that is available from your translation memories and LiveDocs corpora. The more content available, the more precise and personalized the suggestions will be.

LiveDocs

LiveDocs is the best example of features in memoQ that speed up work. It is an alternative to translation memories which keeps your translation content structured and organized. It allows for the reuse of previous material based on the entire corpus rather than segments. This is the technology that makes memoQ, the CAT tool of choice for thousands of translators around the world.
