The latest version features further developments of the system’s key project and business management functionalities. Professional translation agencies and language services using Plunet 5.6 will have a management software at their fingertips that offers the best possible support for the industry’s unique requirements.
 
Systematic Project Management in Plunet 5.6: Defining Master and Sub-Projects

Translation agencies and language services are often faced with the challenge of having to create hierarchical structures for specific projects. The methodologies used in the industry can now be comprehensively and clearly mapped in Plunet 5.6. An order can be created in Plunet as a master project with the option to add any number of sub-projects: possible sub-projects could be associated orders, requests, or quotes. But that’s not all: the newly introduced hierarchy option can be of particular interest for agencies or translation departments working to a budget. In the new version, budgets are no longer assigned to individual orders only – but to master projects and their associated sub-projects instead. The new functionality furthermore generates automated warning messages when budget limits are exceeded, offers clearly definable budget entry and editing rights, and a history log for more security and traceability.

Release date: 31 May, 2013
 
Kilgray Translation Technologies, developer of the translation solutions memoQ, memoQ server, memoQWebTrans, qTerm and Language Terminal, released memoQ 2013 and further improvements to memoQWebTrans and qTerm on 31 May, 2013.

memoQ 2013 will offer a wealth of productivity boosters for freelance translators, language service providers and enterprise customers alike.

Through Linguistic Quality Assurance, language service providers and enterprise users can measure the quality of their translations and translation vendors, whereas translation vendors can learn from and discuss the errors marked by their reviewers. The new discussions module introduces a complete query management. It replaces the current forums in memoQ, memoQWebTrans and qTerm, allows individual discussions on project-related items, and enables customers to get involved in ensuring highest quality terminology and translations. The memoQ server, qTerm and memoQWebTrans can be installed with the same installer. Creating back-ups and moving servers to other computers will also be easier. By running an edit distance analysis, server users will be able to measure the efforts of reviewers and machine translation post-editors. Smaller features include multiple comments to segments, advanced highlighting, fuzzy terminology lookup, and performance metrics.
 
Using Language Terminal, freelance translators – no matter whether they are using memoQ or not – can manage their translation projects in an easier way. In addition to creating real-time previews for translating Adobe InDesign files, memoQ translator pro and Language Terminal users can create quotations immediately after analyzing documents, keep track of the jobs and payments of their customers, and archive projects, quotations, files in the cloud without having a third-party tool.

Other features for freelance translators include a new productivity booster that establishes the target equivalent of words and expressions based on statistical methods – also called the translating concordance – fuzzy lookup in term bases, automatic translation for number-only segments, an integrated web search, and many other productivity features. The new release also adds support for new file formats, including GetText PO files, the XLIFF:doc and TIPP package formats of the Interoperability Now! Initiative, and a TMX filter for enhanced management and review of translation memory contents.

More information on these concepts is available at http://kilgray.com.

Terminotix ajoute la traduction automatique statistique à sa gamme de produits

Terminotix ajoute la traduction automatique à son arsenal de produits en signant un contrat avec le Conseil national de recherches Canada (CNRC) pour la revente et le soutien de PORTAGE.
 
PORTAGE est un logiciel de traduction automatique s’appuyant sur l’analyse statistique et dont les résultats surpassent largement ceux des essais antérieurs visant à automatiser l’art très nuancé de la traduction. PORTAGE est un programme fondé sur l’« apprentissage machine statistique », dont les traductions gagnent en précision avec la fréquence d’utilisation.
 
Les systèmes de traduction automatique statistique utilisent des ensembles de documents préexistants produits par des traducteurs professionnels ainsi que des mises en correspondance par probabilité statistique afin de créer des ébauches de traduction. En alimentant continuellement la base de connaissances de traductions faites par des traducteurs professionnels, celle-ci se développe et accroît la probabilité de résultats de plus grande qualité dans l’avenir. Le système propose une traduction possible fondée sur des documents traduits et révisés antérieurement par des humains.
 
Le système PORTAGE est une des initiatives de la Feuille de route pour la dualité linguistique du Gouvernement du Canada et il a été élaboré par le Conseil national de recherches. PORTAGE est l’aboutissement de recherches en vue de créer un système robuste et adaptable, articulé sur les techniques d’apprentissage machine. Dans les concours internationaux, PORTAGE s’est classé pratiquement au sommet.
 
PORTAGE est accessible via la barre d'outils Terminotix directement dans MS-Word et est intégré à LogiTerm, le logiciel d'aide à la traduction de Terminotix.
 
PORTAGE offre également une interface de type SOAP permettant de l'intégrer à n'importe quel logiciel à mémoire de traduction ou à toute autre plateforme.

Terminotix Adds Statistical Machine Translation to Product Line

Terminotix adds machine translation to its products arsenal by signing a contract with the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) for reselling and for supporting PORTAGE.
 
PORTAGE is a statistics-based software system that yields far better results than earlier attempts to automate the highly nuanced art of translation. PORTAGE is a "statistical learning translation" program that improves its translating accuracy the more it’s used.
 
Statistical machine translation systems use pre-existing bodies of documents produced by professional translators, along with statistical probability matching, in an effort to produce draft translations. By continually feeding completed translations by professional translators back in, the knowledge base grows, increasing the probability of higher-quality output in the future. In essence the system does not translate; rather, it predicts a potential translation based on the input of previously translated and revised work done by humans.
 
The PORTAGE system is one of the initiatives of Roadmap for Linguistic Duality of the Government of Canada and was developed by the National Research Council. PORTAGE is the outcome of a research to create a robust and adaptable system built on machine learning techniques. In international competitions, PORTAGE has come out near the very top.
 
PORTAGE is directly accessible through the Terminotix Toolbar in MS-Word and is directly integrated into LogiTerm, Terminotix translation software.
 
PORTAGE also offers a SOAP interface allowing integration with any translation memory or with any other platform.
 
About Terminotix
Founded by translation professionals over ten years ago, Terminotix Inc. is a company specializing in computer-aided translation (CAT). Terminotix aims to help linguistic services departments and translation firms boost the performance of coordinators, translators, editors and terminologists through effective CAT solutions.

memoQfest USA a Major Success Among Participants

Kilgray Translation Technologies held its first ever American user conference on January 31 - February 2, 2013 in San Antonio, Texas. As with the highly successful memoQfest conferences that have been held in Europe for several years, the level of interaction among participants exceeded Kilgray’s expectations and contributed to the success of the event.
 
“memoQfest was probably the best investment US Translation Company has made in TM technology since purchasing memoQ”, said Claudia Hernandez from US Translation Company. The conference - just like its well-established European counterpart - started with an open account of where Kilgray stands and an update on their technology. Companies like XTRF, Plunet, Easyling, GlobalMe and Asia Online presented their integrations with memoQ. Besides presentations by industry leaders on various topics like business innovation, machine translation or technology deployment, the conference also had many interactive sessions. Of particular interest were the huddles, where teams of 8-15 participants discussed specific issues - terminology, system administration aspects, game localization, feature requests - in the hotel lobby with a Kilgray representative. “Really wonderful to learn who you are, what you are doing, and why you are doing it! The presentations were excellent and I would rather attend your future conferences than most other conferences.”, added David L. Shelton from Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories.
 
Every participant who answered the evaluation sheet was satisfied with the event, and they were particularly impressed with the organization and the networking possibilities. “memoQfest was a great opportunity to meet with other users and learn about features that can improve efficiency”, said Tamara Kislak from Venga Corporation.
 
The conference was sponsored by technology vendors Easyling, Plunet, and XTRF and by the translation company STP Nordic. Kilgray has plans to organize memoQfest USA again in 2014.

memoQ server technology strengthens Milengo’s global reach

Milengo, a global language service provider (LSP), and Hungarian partner espell have joined forces with translation technology specialist Kilgray to trial memoQ with one of Milengo’s largest clients.
 
memoQ is an advanced translation workflow environment that is quickly gaining popularity among LSPs and corporate translation departments seeking increases in efficiency and profitability through advanced translation technology.
 
Working with files in their original format or prepared in other translation tools, memoQ delivers important productivity gains for translators and project managers alike. By centralizing the management of all linguistic assets, memoQ improves output quality and delivers long-term savings through the re use of previous translations. memoQ is available as either a stand-alone version or in an online server environment.
 
‘Selecting the right tools for the job is key to our flexible approach to localization projects’ said Renato Beninatto, CEO and Chief Instigator at Milengo ‘Remaining technology independent gives Milengo the ability to manage a wide range of localization projects and allows us react quickly to the needs of our clients’. The Milengo memoQ trial began recently and is already proving extremely effective, delivering gains in productivity and output quality. ‘Streamlining our workflow with tools like memoQ gives Milengo a clear competitive advantage’ said Renato ‘It also provides clients with an overview of our workflow process allowing us to work collaboratively with them in a way that’s going to revolutionize our industry’
 
Miklos Ban, CEO of espell, Milengo’s Language Technology Centre, has been working closely with Kilgray and memoQ since 2008. ‘memoQ is a fantastic tool and we’ve been using it on our own projects for a while now,’ said Miklos. ‘In today’s fast paced marketplace, it is especially important that we offer our customers responsive, adaptable workflows and tap into the power of collaborative translation to process high volumes of work quickly. This is why we recommended memoQ to our global partners at Milengo.’ 
 
Gabor Farago, espell’s Translation Technology Architect is responsible for testing and managing migration from SDL Trados. ‘memoQ provides us with affordable, state-of-the-art server technology and flexible terminology management, which we’ve needed for some time’ said Gabor. ‘Moving existing Trados translation memories to memoQ turned out to be much smoother than expected, and now memoQ’s powerful alignment, terminology, QA and client review features enable our customers to single-source a wider range of integrated services from us.’
espell and Milengo have also been impressed by the continued support provided by their technology partners at Kilgray. Miklos added, ‘If we have a need for support, Kilgray is always quick to respond. It’s clear to us that, like Milengo and espell, Kilgray is a very customer-focused organization, something we value highly. We’re very pleased with the way memoQ is performing and we’re looking forward to the enhanced functionality Kilgray is planning to add in the future.’

Hever Translators’ Pool deploys Kilgray’s memoQ server technology

Hever Translators’ Pool to invest in Kilgray’s memoQ server technology.
Hever Translators’ Pool the leading translation service provider in Israel, purchased Kilgray’s memoQ server technology due to its remarkable cost-effectiveness, the attentiveness of the developers to the end-users, and Kilgray's outstanding technical support. Using the memoQ server, they have gained centralized control over TMs and term bases, and increased the number of translators who use CAT tools on a regular basis.

Summarizing all the benefits, together with the online document storage, the memoQ server has allowed them to handle large-volume projects without too much technical hassle and improve the quality of services significantly.

About Hever Translators' Pool
Over 50 years ago Hever Translators’ Pool was among the first translation service companies established in Israel. Working with highly skilled employees, and providing a variety of professional, top quality services, the company is a market leader among language service providers.

Translation means much more at Hever Translators’ Pool than converting texts from one language into another. Professional translation requires a full understanding of complex texts, the ability to use the correct terminology, and familiarity with linguistic nuances. In addition, it requires the ability to make changes depending on the specific target language and its culture, while still conveying the spirit and the depths of meaning of the original. These are the principles that have guided Hever Translators’ Pool throughout the last 50 years.

Hever Translators’ Pool is ISO-9002 certified, and is a member of the American Translators Association.

100 Days of PASSOLO 6.0

100 Days of PASSOLO 6.0
The current version of the award-winning localization tool has already established itself as a standard.

(Bonn, 20 September 2006) PASS Engineering is presently celebrating the first 100 successful days of PASSOLO 6.0. The consistently positive echo from customers and the clear increase in sales for the German software company show that PASSOLO’s new features are exactly what the market really needs. “Compared with the first half of the year, our turnover has increased by another 40%,” says Claudia Fricke, Business Development Manager of PASS Engineering
One key factor for the success of the new version is the extended support for Microsoft.NET, now including Framework 2.0; customer demand for this feature has been enormous. Other features such as the HTML editor and networking functionality have also attracted a lot of customers. “What all the innovations of this version have in common,” says Fricke, “is that they help users save time, and money. And the users have recognized and acknowledged these benefits.”
.NET localization is going to be the focus of a workshop by the managing director of PASS Engineering and TILP professional Florian Sachse to be held prior to the coming Localization World Conference in Montreal (16-18 October 2006): Sachse’s workshop “How to master .NET Localization” will provide a practical introduction on how to handle .NET in the localization process.

About PASS Engineering
PASS Engineering GmbH, located in Bonn, Germany, has been in business since 1990. Their focus was initially in the development of medical-technical software, but later shifted to the field of software localization.
In the context of globalization, software localization plays a key role: localization tools like PASSOLO present the translatable data so that it can be edited in a simple but secure way. By leveraging already translated strings it is possible to accelerate the time-to-market cycle. The Add-in concept allows data exchange between PASSOLO and other tools relevant to the localization process.
