Memsource review by <span>Martin P.</span>

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.

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

I am a linguist and translator for a large company, we use it for consistency in translations

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.

What do you dislike?

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.
