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.
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.
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.
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 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.

Integration with Language Terminal

OK but that's not enough to use it professionnally
Sanja_FR . This CAT tool is OK to work with but ugh. The interface is not clear, everything is cluttered, the autocomplete text is a nightmare, the QA tool is useless.
For some reason, someone decided that the differences between the TM and the current sentence should have a nearly invisible highlight. Context checks are tedious, the glossary and TM windows are not user-friendly. I mean it sort of does the job if you don't look too closely, but really I stay away from this one as much as I can.

5 out of 5Powerful and consolidated straightforward tool for all levels of translation, from beginners to experts. Excellent support and straightforward pricing.
Marc RizkallahAs a translator getting started in the business, I was overwhelmed by the choice of CAT tools available. There were countless stories of users frustrated with the bloated complexity of the market leader, SDL Trados (even though it appears to have improved in recent years). Contrarily, MemoQ started off as an underdog with the freelance translator in mind, and even published this "Declaration of Independence": http://kilgray.com/company/declaration-independence
Its smaller team means they can respond more quickly to users' needs, in a friendly way. Indeed, their excellent support is what convinced me to purchase the product, and I haven't looked back so far.
There are many choices out there, each with their own intricacies - but MemoQ does everything you expect from a CAT tool, in a way that seems to me less bloated than some of its leading competitors.
Not to mention the great fun and community spirit in the memoQfest conferences ;)
(PS. As a Certified MemoQ Trainer, I'm happy to answer any questions you may have!)

5 out of 5Very easy to learn, excellent support, wide range of tools and modules
jferedoI have been using this product since 2003 or 2004. I recovered its price by one large project. It is much much easier to learn than TRADOS. You can use it within half an hour and learn it on the go. Organizing documents, projects ect. is a breeze...TMs, etc. are automatically managed. The program can generate practically any kind of output. The QA (Quality Assurance) module is an excellent product, unfortunately not included in the basic package. If you translate lots of similar kind of documents and consequent quality is important, MemoQ is a must. Although the list price maybe high, MemoQ is almost always available at discount price (i.e. at conferences, promotions etc.). Very highly recommended. (I used TRADOS and DeJavu before).
