There now is a workflow to translate memoQ projects in CafeTran:

Would the XLIFF route offer you any advantages?

The article has been updated in order to cover handling of memoQ files via the XLIFF route, making Microsoft Word unnecessary.

You can save a couple of steps (renaming .mqxlz to .zip, unzipping .zip) by leaving Save a compressed file (.mqxlz) unticked:

In order to be able to do that, you need to untick the other two settings, but I don't believe CafeTran would do anything with the skeleton or the version history anyway.

This is even better if you are dealing with several files, as with your method (renaming compressed file to zip, then unzipping), all files would be named document.mqxliff. If you export them uncompressed, each one will keep its original name and get the .mqxliff extension.

Thanks Dominique! A good addition.
