Getting Started for Linguists

Getting Started for Linguists

Linguists are translators, reviewers or proofreaders and have a specified role in Memsource.

Linguists will spend most of their time working within the Memsource Editor. Although it is easy to access a job and start translating, it is highly recommended that some time is spent looking into the features of the editor before getting started.

The first step for linguists is to access their account. New linguist users receive an email with instructions on how to set up a password.

When logged in, linguists are presented with the Linguist Portal where assigned jobs are managed.

Clicking on a job will open it in the Memsource Editor for Web which is the preferred tool as all associated translation memories and term bases are automatically connected.

Jobs can also be downloaded if a linguist prefers and the project manager allows editing in the Memsource Editor for Desktop where login credentials will need to be applied in order to access translation resources.

When a job is complete, the linguist changes the status to Completed and the jobs are no longer accessible for editing.

See the Introduction to Memsource for Linguists under the product tab of our webinar page.
