Kilgray fine-tunes workflow with the release of MemoQ v2.2

December 06, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Kilgray Translation Technologies, an independent company dedicated to the development of translation productivity tools has announced the release of version 2.2 of the Integrated Localization Environment (ILE) MemoQ. MemoQ has already established itself as a leading software tool for supporting the work of human translators, proofreaders and translating enterprises. Using the MemoQ technology, companies can lower their translation costs by 30-50%.

Triggered by customer requests, the new release introduces seamless support for the bilingual RTF format. MemoQ's new bilingual RTF is equivalent in functionality to MemoQ’s existing bilingual format, MBD: all files available in any original file format can be exported into and imported from bilingual RTF. This enables proofreaders and reviewers to work in Microsoft Word and import the changes they propose with a single mouse-click. Any MBD can be converted into RTF and back without any loss of data.

The new release also introduces support for views. Users can create views by combining segments with specific segment types or expressions into a single virtual document. Views can combine multiple documents into one or can also split a single document into multiple documents. Views can be sent out for translation just like normal documents and when imported back, they can refresh the content of the original translation documents.

Other improvements include improved handling of tagged formats like XML, INX and MIF, a reworked document storage also allowing the efficient handling of documents with over 10,000 segments and improved whitespace handling in the case of double-byte languages.

MemoQ has a strong focus on easy-to-use and productive user interfaces and collaboration. Upgrades are always free of charge for registered users of both the server and the client technologies. All existing users are entitled to MemoQ 2.2 for free. MemoQ’s five-year development roadmap guarantees investment into the most dynamically developing translation technology acclaimed by dozens of corporations and hundreds of freelance translators.
