". A tool for project management and assign translation work to translators."

What do you like best?

.

It is a tool that is used online and also with the editor you can make the translation out of the web to access it. It allows you the function of project management and assign translation jobs to translators. It has an instruction that explains how you can use it and presents it as a help manual. Through access to the cloud once entering the user data and password assigned by the agency. After the assignment of data to use the resource, you can see the files that one should work, the number of projects and translation memory and a loaded terminological base.

What do you dislike?

It is very complex when you name the Memsource server. However, this tool offers a help manual to understand it and make use of the Editor. It offers you a series of options that you can select to review, edit or create projects. It has its limitations to obtain its services, since it is more efficient if it is connected to the web. The other thing when you work from the cloud does not seem so reliable in the security of the files.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Memsource works as a translation assistance editor, it's like a project bank for the web-based translator. It is very important to know that the editor must be downloaded in order to translate. It is a program of advanced technology. I recommend new users not to worry if they are not bilingual. since this tool offers the opportunity to select in the interface the language you need and this can be done from the cloud and also from the desktop. I find it very useful because it allows for easier translations that can be saved on your computer and on the server.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

He is the editor of professionals, especially linguistic translators who like to review and edit projects. It gives you a series of functions that are complex to use. But it offers the opportunity to translators to strengthen the quality of translation to manage projects, increase productivity by responding to the concerns and needs of translation. It allows you to share and update translation memories to verify the quality of the process until the end. For installation and configuration, there is a free download as proof. but you need internet access Among its benefits that I find very useful, I reiterate for short and simple translations as a user, and I can even analyze document.

"Translation Organization"

What do you like best?

When using Memsource in a translation capacity, I enjoyed how organized it was and I never feared losing my work or progress. The backup feature where it will save my work if I am disconnected from the internet has been a life saver. I also enjoy the ability to track my own work throughout the software without having to keep a notepad by my computer any longer.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I did not like about the Memsource software, as I did use the web-based application, is that it would sometimes lag or not respond.

Recommendations to others considering the product

-Great organization

-Task assignments are seamless

-Back up server that will allow you to upload progress once re-connected to the internet.

-Compatible with both Mac and Windows

-Easy to learn and implement in a company

-

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problem that Memsource was used to solve was organizing translation tasks. The first benefit was the ability to have translation assignments assigned to me. Then, just simply accepting the assignment and that alerting the necessary parties that I was working on the assignment. Furthermore, it allowed me to send my progress via the confirmation component.

"Elegant, reliable, good ROI for teams"

What do you like best?

Memsource is way more efficient than traditional, expensive desktop software. I usually have new translators up & running in 3-4 hours. Everyone is on the same platform. The system works reliably: virtually no downtimes, no data silos / vendor lock-in. Offline clients are available for OS X, Windows and Linux. Things just work. Clean interface, no info overload. Great support - fast, friendly, competent.

What do you dislike?

Memsource Editions (currently there are ten) are a bit confusing. Out-of-the-box support for WordPress and other popular CMS would be great.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get a test account, set up a test project, throw in every file format you expect to work with. Make sure your users learn keyboard shortcuts and understand tags. Make them use the QA feature. Make sure your projects are well-structured (by product, department, whatever works for you). Moving documents to other projects is doable, but should probably be avoided.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I run a small technical writing and translation agency, working with about a dozen freelance translators. Memsource helps us translate documents (web content, product manuals, brochures, ads, promos, whitepapers, video subtitles and more) for major clients in the IT, MI and AV industries.

"Good translation service"

What do you like best?

It has a user interface that resembles other standalone tools so is extremely simple to get if you recognize with other. You can utilize it free of charge with little files and there's no time at all limitation

What do you dislike?

Amongst the downsides, I miss out on a live sneak peek function many of all and in some cases I want to link my own TMs and glossaries to the tasks I am dealing with, which is presently not possible.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were able touse the api for translating software

"Easy and powerful"

What do you like best?

Easy to use, fast and powerful. Covers most of our every day needs. AND we can collaborate with freelancers without forcing them to subscribe to Memsource Cloud.

What do you dislike?

More traceability at job and user level would be needed. As administrator, I would appreciate knowing who did what and when for each job and user.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Review your current translation processes. See what are the weaknesses. And see if Memsource Cloud can provide you with a better solution. In most of the cases, it will.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Memsource Cloud allows us to provide solutions to our customers, and not just translated words.

Internally, Memsource Cloud increases project management and translation productivity.

Memsource Cloud is also integrated with our own project management system, for more automation.

"Preferrable CAT tool for APriori Translation Company"

What do you like best?

Very flexible in terms of monthly number of licenses, online and offline editing modes, very customizable, convenient glossary management, smart pre-translation, regularly added new features

What do you dislike?

Limited number of linguists per license

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very user-friendly even for linguists who never used TM tools before.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We integrated Memsource at APriori five years ago, and immediately felt the benefits: it is especially valuable for large projects involving a few linguists working simultaneously. Its implementation resulted in faster turnaround, better terminology and style consistency and quality assurance.

"Since early years, I have been using Memsource"

What do you like best?

Unlike other complicated CAT took, Memsource is very simple to use (you need only 30 minutes to get used to). In addition, a cloud translation system is very nice because you can work at home, in office, and even when you are somewhere on a business trip. Memsource is relatively less expensive as well.

What do you dislike?

There is almost nothing I dislike Memsource. However, if I was forced to mention, then Memsource would preferably improve on a project management function.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I strongly recommend Memsource to every user. I am sure it is easy to use because Memsource Editor gets rid of unnecessary functions unlike other CAT tools.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When we grew, we had a problem of not being able to manage our large volume of translation jobs. We needed a system across the organization rather than an individually-installed desktop CAT tool in order to share translation data in a translation memory. Memsource solved this problem in a matter of minute!

"Very bad"

What do you like best?

They are pretty fast solving problems with the platform

What do you dislike?

It’s not intuite, too many buttons and you don’t really know what they are there for, it crashes many times, the mobile version doesn’t have any purpose, the translation suggested are very odd (to say the least), it is very slow with large amounts on works...

What do you like best?

I love the simplicity of being able to translate in a more robust manner than with Google Translate

What do you dislike?

The cost is something that I dislike. I wish it was FREE!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Managing an online global community with a barebones staff means that our team has to have access to translation resources.

Easy to use, progress is saved automatically, you can also use it offline and then upload the file when it is ready.

"Memsource is easy to learn and to work with"

What do you like best?

Customized workflow, build-in QA, online quoting with automation widget, compatibility with Mac and Linux. It is also very easy to make Memsource a part of academic education.

Most young translators, students and teachers at academic institutions are not acquainted with Memsource. We constantly have to look for more new users to manage bigger projects.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Memsource helps me to ensure better quality, cut cost and shorten delivery dates thanks to synergy of group work.

"Memsource Review"

What do you like best?

Memsource is an easy use online CAT tool.

What do you dislike?

I wish it had a native app to work offline.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Memsource is platform agnostic since it works online. All you need is a web browser and an internet connection. Its learning curve is subtle, if you already work with other CAT tools.
