Hello everyone, first post here,

After using MemoQ during my Master's degree, and at work for 10 month, I finally have my own licence.
As I'm very interested in optimizing everything that I do, I took a closer look at predictive typing.

While I understand it works with TB and muses, so bilingual corpora, isn't there a way to also have monolingual only predictive typing, purely in order to improve speed? I'm really thinking of something as simple as I have on my Samsung Galaxy...

This program looked very promising, but: it increases your mouse speed (even after uninstalling it, so you have to fix your mouse speed manually afterwards).

I tested typing assistant for a while and it works superbly in Word, email, etc., however not in combination with autosuggest/predictive typing in my CAT tools, though that may have been fixed by now.

I don't remember the exact name of this software (MindReader?), but I have heard that they have a predictive typing program for lawyers. It is less than 100 USD.

I have Typing Assistant and it does a really nice job. It predicts just what you are about to type, and the AutoExpand function is lovely.
