Machine Translation

Memsource Translate

Memsource Translate evaluates the quality of different machine translation engines and automatically selects the best performing engine for a project based on the language pair. It supports 69 language pairs and includes Machine Translation Quality Estimation (MTQE).

  • Memsource Translate is provided in all accounts and is after March 12, 2019, the default machine translation engine.

  • Memsource Translate characters can be used by all MT engines supported by Memsource Translate.

  • Multiple instances of Memsource Translate can not be created.

  • Free characters are included in each edition (Ultimate: 2M, Team and Academic: 500k, Team Start: 250k, Personal: 50k). These characters are for testing purposes and specific to the purchased edition; upgrades do not include more characters.


  • If purchasing characters directly through Google or Microsoft, set these engines up directly through the providers.

  • Free characters provided by Microsoft Translator can still be used by disabling Memsource Translate and setting up the Microsoft Translator account.
