Memsource files in memoQ

Tweet When it comes to online CAT-tools I personally consider Memsource as one of the better ones – it’s reasonably fast, offers decent functionality and usability.

XML translation – part 2: memoQ

Defining non-translatable tags based on attributes

In my previous post I’ve described what is XML, what is it for and what are the particular components. This time I’m going to show you how to properly import almost any XML file into memoQ for translation. I’m going to reference the files described in previous part, so you might want to look there for comparison and file structure description.
