I recently switched to using a master term base hosted in the Language Terminal, so that my partner and I can add terms to a shared online TB that instantly updates the terms to the other person (making it an alternative to paying for memoQ server), rather than having to share local TBs back and forth to keep things up-to-date. However, since then, every confirm I make to a segment now freezes memoQ for about 1 second. This corresponds to a loss of about 16 minutes of my time every 1000 confirmed segments. If I add a second LT TB, the delay increases to an unacceptable 3 seconds. The same thing happens on my partner's computer.

Since we are located in Brazil, far away from Europe, I'm thinking this issue is caused by network latency between us and Kilgray's Language Terminal server (presumably located in Hungary). If people located in Europe don't get this delay, but people from other continents do, this hypothesis would be confirmed. Would you guys help me test this?

The testing process should take around 3 minutes. Here are the instructions:

1- Create two TBs in the following Language Terminal page: https://app.languageterminal.com/tbsharing. You must create a LT account if you don't have one.

2- Add some terms to it by exporting one of your existing TBs to a (.csv) file from within memoQ and importing it to the Language Terminal TBs you just created.

3- Open memoQ's termbase screen within a project and select Language Terminal in the bar where it normally says "My Computer" in the top-right. Change it to Language Terminal (you may have to click "manage logins" and log in with your LT login info, I'm not sure). Then click the little checkmark icon beside that box. The two online TB should appear in yellow in the list. Select both. Make sure one of them is set as the target for new terms (name will be in bold).

4- Open a document and confirm some segments with Ctrl + Enter, one at a time. It shouldn't matter if they have already been confirmed. Observe how long is the delay you get, if any.

5- Report duration of delay and your country here. This will help Kilgray diagnose the issue.

Many thanks!

Germany, duration of delay < 500 ms Nov 16, 2017

Hi Eric,

I did as you requested and this is what I can report:

Two LT TBs selected, one of which had 4 entries, the other 97
Location: Germany (connected @ 100 MBit/s)
Delay: Very short delay (certainly < 500 ms); note this is not different from working with local resources and it wouldn't have any significant impact on my work.
Hope this helps.

results lookup delay Nov 16, 2017

Thank you very much! This reminds me that you can eliminate the "delay for looking up results" by double-clicking the eye icon in the translation results pane and changing the last option in the window that comes up. I have no freaking clue why there is a 500 ms default delay for this.

My Russian friend also reports no significant delay, so now ideally I need someone from another continent to test.
