Hi there,

This post is directly related to the one I just wrote.
Despite sending twice the same email in 3 months to MemoQ Support, I never had any reply.

As part of the package I bought, I am entitled to a certain number of free support hours - which I have not used fully - and since I was stuck early on with the hurdles I described in the post I've just written here - I sought MemoQ Support's help. But never got any.

Does anybody know how to file a formal complaint with MemoQ about the poor support service I have experienced?

Many thanks in advance,
Kind regards,

memoQ support is usually very good Oct 20, 2014

Hi Claire,

memoQ support is usually very good, so I wonder what happened in your particular case.

I'd ask in the memoQ mailing list:

Surprised Oct 20, 2014

I'm really surprised too, it's always been one of the great things about MemoQ in my opinion. There has to be an explanation... did you submit the request via their site?

Thank you + extra information Oct 20, 2014

Thank you for your comment.

Well, I am surprised too since an urgent and debilitating functionality crisis was dealt with swiftly & professionally by the support team in July.

However, it seems that my request to be granted help with functionalities was not rated important enough.
I emailed support:
- on 16 September voicing my disappointment - no reply.
- on 20 Jul [#APD-930-93480] & 10 sept [#IBO-741-62558]) - automatic reply confirming safe receipt of requests then no reply.

Not long ago, I posted a topic also asking for details of the team dealing with complaints on MemoQ Yahoo Group (joined in July hoping to find answers to my requests) - funny enough I never saw it ... was it "edited out"?

Anyway, not a happy customer here...

Many thanks for your help,
Kind regards,

Slow support reply Oct 20, 2014

Hi Claire,

I checked your tickets and found that you have submitted them into the feature request queue. When creating a ticket directly in our support system, you can choose from "support" and "feature request". Feature requests are not monitored the same way support tickets are, but i do understand that this might be confusing, so we will look into this, and find a way to guide our users to the correct forum.

In any case, if you do not receive a timely answer, you can always mail us directly from your mail client at

I hope this helps,

Márton Horváth
Support Manager at Kilgray

Usually fast response Oct 20, 2014

I've always found that an email to gets fast response, usually within a few hours and sometimes within minutes. And the response is often not from a customer service rep but from one of the application engineers themselves.

Where has Kilgray support gone? Dec 21, 2016

I asked for support on 20 December because I couldn't access Linguee from memoQ2015. I got a reply at 11 pm (!) asking how I was using it (Ctrl F3, as usual). I replied next morning. It's now 18:43 on 21 December and I still haven't had a reply. This was an urgent request because the translation was due today. Fortunately the client accepted a translation made without memoQ, but they expect translations to be sent back to their memoQ server. Support in the past has been excellent. Are they having internal problems, I have to wonder.

Same issue as Angus Dec 31, 2016

I just posted about a similar issue with Web Search and the lack of response from memoQ. Hopefully someone will get back to us soon as it's really quite frustrating!
