Kilgray Translation Technologies Opens USA Office
Kilgray Translation Technologies, developers of memoQ products and TM Repository, has opened its first USA office in Austin, Texas. Headed up by long-time industry professional, Patricia Bown, as Director of Sales, Americas, Kilgray will be adding project-, vendor-, and implementation management expertise to its business development team.
The USA is an important market for Kilgray's products and the next logical progression after having solidified its user base in Europe. The USA office will help support an expected enthusiastic response in the market to its major new release of memoQ version 4.0 for the server and desktop.
Kilgray products are used by freelance translators, language service providers on any scale, as well as medium-sized export-oriented companies and multinational enterprises. “In today's competitive market, both control and flexibility need to be available at every stop in the 'food chain' for globalized and localized content,” says István Lengyel, COO of Kilgray Translation Technologies. “We expect the new release [memoQ 4.0] to appeal to the distinctly North American independent streak, creating a breakthrough in this market for Kilgray. With the opening of this office, we are devoting resources to be able to work more directly with the US and other American markets.”
Kilgray Translation Technologies, a company headquartered in Budapest, Hungary, delivers computer-assisted technologies for the translation industry. The company was established in 2004 and launched the first version of memoQ, a translation memory tool, in 2006. All products of Kilgray - memoQ, memoQ Server and TM Repository - facilitate, accelerate and optimize the entire translation process. The networked translation suites of Kilgray are team-oriented and designed for the use of small translation teams as well as large enterprises.
