Milengo, espell and Kilgray Set an Example for Collaboration


memoQ server technology strengthens Milengo’s global reach

Berlin, Budapest - July 19, 2010 - 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.’
