Introducing In-Context Preview for Microsoft Word, HTML and XML in Memsource Desktop Editor (from Memsource website)

Introducing In-Context Preview for Microsoft Word, HTML and XML in Memsource Desktop Editor (from Memsource website) | Translator Tools | Scoop.it

The desktop Memsource Editor is 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.

Stanislav Okhvat's insight:
This post covers a new feature in Memsource Desktop Editor – the ability to see an in-context preview of the translation for Microsoft Word, HTML and XML documents.

Memsource 6.2: Translate Google Docs + Run Projects without a Manager

Memsource 6.2: Translate Google Docs + Run Projects without a Manager | Translator Tools | Scoop.it

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 projects without a human project manager, and to use Memsource translation memory in other CAT tools.

Stanislav Okhvat's insight:
Memsource has added a number of new features: 
1) It is possible to pull Google Documents (Docs, Sheets and Slides) from Google Drive into a project for translation (the connector for Google Drive is only available for Team and Business editions).
2) It is now possible to upload files for translation from online repositories (Google Drive, Dropbox and FTP) automatically.
3) TMX files downloaded from Memsource are now fully interoperable with other CAT tools - tags are now represented with standard TMX format tags rather than special codes as they used to be.
4) Some other updates.

Quick Tips: How to translate a MemSource project using memoQ (from About Translation blog by Riccardo Schiaffino)

Quick Tips: How to translate a MemSource project using memoQ (from About Translation blog by Riccardo Schiaffino) | Translator Tools | Scoop.it
Recently a major customer of ours changed from using SDL Trados Studio to using MemSource, an online CAT tool. For a translator accustomed to more powerful CAT tools, using MemSource has a downside: many of the functions we have come to rely on are missing. I will probably write more about MemSource in the future. Here is a quick workaround for those who would much rather use memoQ instead of Memsource...
