as usual, received the notice, downloaded, installed, and opened an ongoing translation with the new release: zero problems

The new interface is even faster than my old 8.7 one

2 thumbs up for memoQ developers!

Any GUI improvement? Jun 12, 2019

Has there been any improvement in the graphical user interface or is it still the usual patchwork of inconsistent graphical elements? I have not seen any screenshots or videos, which I find odd.

memoQ 9.0 rocks Jun 12, 2019

Same here, I installed MemoQ 9, no problem, what has changed?
And why does the splash screen say v8.7?

likely because you clicked the icon of the old release...

as usual, all memoQ version coexist

Well, no, I uninstalled v8.7 so...
I run CCleaner, cleaned the Registry, the MQ logo in the task bar shows 9.0 but the splash screen still shows 8.7 but version number is definitely 9.0 in MyMemoQ. Go figure...

be careful with CCleaner, it smashes the registry sometimes...

that said, asking to developers is the best practice at this point

Note that memoQ 9 gets installed in c:\Program Files\memoQ\ whereas all the previous versions were installed in c:\Program Files (x86)\Kilgray\ – this could be the reason.

MemoQ 9.0 pebbles Jun 12, 2019

I just installed 9.0. No problem with splash screen, but I am trying to bring up my LiveDocs and they won't appear. It is pretty hard to edit them when you can't call them up. The folders all exist under MemoQ/Corpora.

Also, I have a memoQ server contact that keeps coming up and dominating, even if I want to use "My Computer."

Hey Kilgray, do you monitor this forum, or do I have to contact you directly?

maybe they do that, but thinking (as often think nowadays) that fora are the best way to have support is wrong

issuing a ticket for developers is the right way, and memoQ ones reply very quickly
my 2 cents

Is the TM handling any better? Jun 13, 2019

I read the article about the new version, but didn't really see improvements for translators who are not interested in MT. Are there any?

I like many things in MemoQ, but especially the way TMs are handled is unintuitive and limiting. To compare, with Trados Studio you can set up as many TMs as you want for a project, and adjusting the settings and penalties for each is very simple. With MemoQ you first have to understand the differences between a Master, Working and "no title" (ref

To compare, with Trados Studio you can set up as many TMs as you want for a project, and adjusting the settings and penalties for each is very simple. With MemoQ you first have to understand the differences between a Master, Working and "no title" (reference) TM, and then there's no way to set up multiple TMs to update simultaneously as you translate. This is something I'm hoping will be improved sooner rather than later.

not sure, but I think to remember something about that topic in their memoQ 9 page

what I can say after one day working, is that the fuzzies retrieval is a lot improved

it's difficult to explain how it works, because I have to complete an urgent job, but it works very well with those lists of similar sentences where only some term changes

clearly, it works well in my case because I have huge and well-maintained termbases

8.7 on my splash screen Jun 21, 2019

My version 9 splash screen says 8.7 too, and it is not because I'm starting version 8.7.

MemoQ 9.0 rocks...well not really Jun 21, 2019

So I uninstalled everything MemoQ 8.7.
I reinstalled MemoQ 9.
Splash screen still shows v8.7
If anybody from MQ support reads this, please let me know why this is so.
It's not vital, but it's annoying.

memoQ 9 gets installed in c:\Program Files\memoQ\ whereas all the previous versions were installed in c:\Program Files (x86)\Kilgray\

…and after updating the shortcut the right version is started:

memoQ 9

My shortcut is fine Jun 21, 2019

My shortcut is fine: "C:\Program Files\memoQ\memoQ-9\MemoQ.exe"

The splash screen still says 8.7, but under My MemoQ, it says 9.0.8.

Support say they're aware of the bug and will fix it.
