Does anything think this is clear, understandable English? Not to mention the glaring typo.

This is my biggest beef with MemoQ too May 16, 2015

Most of the interface just isn't in English - albeit I am sure they think it is.

There's also the issue of the 2014 version being increasingly more buggy and crashing - which the older versions were not and did not.

It has always been an "in" thing to badmouth Microsoft. MemoQ is a nice tool, but it makes me wish for Microsoft's finesse. I never thought I'd say something like this, but here I am. Oh, well...

If you think the English is bad, wait until you see the Spanish interface!

For instance, in the QA menu, “Open documents” (e.g., documents that are open) is translated as “Do open the documents”. There are quite a few mistranslations like that.
