Upcoming MemoQ webinars

The Kilgray webinar calendar is worth a look. Right now there are seven free one hour presentations listed covering topics such as MemoQ Basics, Advanced MemoQ and features of the MemoQ 4.0 version, which is scheduled for release before Valentine's Day (and which beats flowers, a box of chocolates and a kiss any time). The presentations are mostly in English, with one basics webinar currently scheduled in Hungarian and German.

Although currently not my first choice for every task, overall the combination of innovative momentum, ergonomic superiority (a fancy way of saying "ease of use", really), legendary support, affordability (leaving plenty of cash on hand to maintain stocks of Unicum for work), great central server technology and other darned useful features make this software the leader that SDL Trados now follows in the LSP and freelance market segments and my recommendation to most users and LSPs in search of a great, versatile and interoperable translation environment tool. Mind you, SDL is probably writing the script now for a remake of The Empire Strikes Back after the agile team at Kilgray scored the critical bullseye up the poop chute of the Death Star with the release of MemoQ version 3.5 last spring. But MemoQ 4.0 promises to deliver even more, so the Trados developers (those guys who gave the world wonders like Trados Workbench) may have to start mainlining energy drinks to keep up.
