The latest release of desktop Memsource Editor features three major new updates: Partial QA Checks, Inserting Symbols, and a Localized Editor Interface. Please download the latest edition of Memsource Editor to access these new features.
The desktop Memsource Editor and online Web Editor are now available with a real-time in-context preview for Microsoft Word, HTML, and XML file types, including DITA files. The in-context preview allows translators to preview the translation in its native format with real-time changes while translating. This eliminates the need to download the original or translated document separately and provides an instant context for the segments currently being translated.
This week’s release hails in a major new feature: the ability to connect to WordPress sites and easily translate them online.
Memsource 6.2 is now live, following the major release 6.0 two weeks ago. This week’s update features the ability to translate Google Documents, to run automated projects, and to use Memsource translation memory in other CAT tools.
A faster Web Editor, connectors to Dropbox, Google Drive and FTP, and seamless PDF translations via TransPDF are the most notable improvements in this autumn release.
Memsource Cloud 5.6 is scheduled for release on Sunday, 15 May 2016, at 10:00 AM GMT. The most important of the new features introduced in this release is the new concept of translation memory context where users will be able to choose how in-context or perfect matches are constituted. We are also introducing a new metadata category, Business Units, which will help in the organization and structuring of especially large accounts with many users and resources.
Memsource Cloud 5.5 has been released on Sunday, 10 April 2016, at 11:00 AM GMT with zero downtime. This release brings a number of improvements of which these two stand out: A) Custom data visualization and exploration using Kibana, a free data visualization workbench. B) Advanced API improvements, such as webhooks as well as opening up our API to linguist users (our API was previously limited to administrator and project manager users).
Upgrading software to a new version can bring lots of improvements, but at the same time can cause disruption to its users. In the pre-cloud era, a system administrator would need to install the upgrade. The software would need to be at least restarted. Sometimes data would need to be migrated, hardware re-configured. All sorts of issues could come up. For that reason, software publishers would try to minimize the number of new releases to just a few per year. This is still true for most non-cloud software.
Memsource Cloud 5.4 is scheduled for release on Sunday, 28 February 2016, at 11:00 AM GMT. This release is literally packed with new features including some major improvements. We are extending Memsource API support to all of our customers. And the recently introduced business analytics features will now also be available for our translation agency customers.
