memoQ, the leading provider of translation technology, has released memoQ version 8.5. The DeepL MT Plugin and the video preview for subtitling are among the high-notes in this new release. The release brings improvements in six different areas, including integrations, terminology management, productivity features, file filters, performance, and server workflows.

Machine translation is not a new phenomenon, but it continues to be a big trend within the translation industry. DeepL – from the developers of Linguee – has managed to generate not just buzz but genuine demand. The new DeepL plugin connects memoQ to this neural machine translation engine. “It is one of the most requested integrations ever” – said Gergely Vándor, Product Lead at memoQ.

Like neural machine translation, video localization is another niche growing faster than the industry average. Integrating video with memoQ provides translators and language service providers with the context they need to complete their jobs. Demand for this sort of functionality was forecasted in the memoQ Trend Report earlier this year. Last April, memoQ introduced new file filters for handling subtitling formats easier. Version 8.5 takes it one step further, with a state of the art preview plugin for subtitling videos. The plugin opens the video file exactly at the part where needed to be translated, displays the translated text in a live preview, and shows the number of words per minute, characters per second or characters per line.

These are just some of the highlights in memoQ 8.5, which also features improvements to the ZIP filters, lookup in enterprise term bases, and productivity boosters.

A detailed description on the most recent release – featuring all its benefits – is available at https://www.memoq.com/en/memoq-versions/memoq-8-5.
