XTRF Platform offers integration with server versions of memoQ, a popular CAT tool developed by memoQ (formerly Kilgray).
For detailed information about supported versions, see: memoQ Integration Compatibility.
For the integration to be set up, memoQ server Web Service API has to be purchased and installed.
See: memoQ Integration Pre-configuration.
With XTRF, you can start managing a memoQ project while the work is being agreed upon in a quote. The integration works in the following way:
Once a project is created, the integration works in the following way:
New projects can be created in memoQ based on a quote in XTRF or directly from a project in XTRF. Depending on the scenario, memoQ projects have names corresponding to the quote number or project number in XTRF.
This is applicable for XTRF v2015 Winter (3.5) and newer.
When XTRF creates a project in memoQ, and the first (translation) job is started, the memoQ workflow status is set to "Translation (in progress)".
When the first (translation) job is finished in XTRF, and the second job is started, the memoQ workflow status is set to "Review 1 (in progress)".
When the second job is finished in XTRF, and the third job is started, the memoQ workflow status is set to "Review 2 (in progress)".
When the last job is finished in XTRF, the memoQ workflow status is set to "Completed".
Thus the vendors do not need to click "Deliver/Return" in memoQ. XTRF does it for them.
Also all memoQ's "not started" statuses are skipped.
The above scenario is valid when a three-step workflow is selected. When a two-step workflow is used, the "Review 1 (in progress)" status is skipped. When the translation-only workflow is selected, finishing the translation sets the memoQ workflow status to "Completed" right away.
Reverting a job's status in XTRF reverts the workflow status also in memoQ.
Cancelling or deleting a job in XTRF doesn't affect the workflow in memoQ.
There are 3 types of Translation Memory (TM) files in memoQ, which are defined by the level of connection with a client and its usage. These TM files are:
The management and assignment of TM and Terminology files to a specific type is possible in memoQ only.
This is applicable for XTRF v2014 Autumn (3.4) and newer.
If "Create CAT Receivable" and/or "Create CAT Payables" options are turned on, during the project creation a CAT analysis file will be downloaded from memoQ and stored in the Log File folder.
The analysis will be created in CSV format and the filename will be: memoq_analysis.csv.
For the list of supported formats of CAT analyses generated by memoQ that can be imported into XTRF regardless of the integration, see CAT Analysis Import.
For the complete list of supported document formats, please see Kilgray's website.
The following bilingual file formats are supported on different steps of the workflow:
|MQXLZ||MQXLZ files containing multiple MQXLIFF files are not supported|
|MQXLIFF / XLIFF|
|MBD||Depends on memoQ server version|
|Two Column RTF|
Note: "Require All Files to Finish" option should be turned off in the "finalize project" step.
XTRF can manage (list, download, upload, assign to projects, etc.) the following types of memoQ resources:
For the complete list of available languages, please see Kilgray's website and memoQ Help.
A three-letter language code from ISO 639-2 and a two-letter country code from ISO 3166-1 have to be provided in XTRF's (e.g. "eng-us" for English (United States). To do so, go to System > Configuration > System Values > Languages.
