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.
