MemoQ is increasing its market share compared to programs such as SDL Trados Studio, Transit or Déjà Vu
The collaboration contract was signed thanks to our company's growth strategy. Kilgray was founded in 2007, but it has established itself as one of the computer aided translation software companies which has most rapidly increased its market share at the expense of companies such as the English SDL, the German STAR Group or the Spanish Atril, creator of the software Déjà Vu, twho have been developing their projects for more than two decades.
The study, carried out by our Sales and Marketing Director, José Gambín, and published by the journal Multilingual, one of the most important journals in the translation sector on an international level, confirmed other sector information regarding Kilgray's growth. In the study “Evolution of cloud-based translation memory”, the results of a survey carried out amongst 1300 freelance translators regarding the use of on line translation database technology were published. In the words of our Sales and Marketing Director: "Our partnership with Kilgray will bring us new business opportunities based on the expansion of their technology in addition to increasing the productive capacity of our company thanks to the incorporation of their technology. Kilgray has been successful in pinpointing the keys of its development strategy in order to be rapidly accepted in the sector".
Through the Growing Together programme, Kilgray will offer our company extra licenses, temporal licenses and provider discounts. Likewise, we will be able to participate in beta programmes and on line development seminars regarding future changes.
Besides which, we have pledged to Kilgray to use their software in an increasing number of projects. In fact, we use Kilgray's on line platform for all of our projects involving the participation of several translators. In these projects, it is important to share information in real time in order to achieve maximum consistency and save costs.
We were in Budapest during the memoQfest, a yearly gathering developed by Kilgray and joining its most important clients. By meeting the team in person we were able to understand the key to their business success. They are young with great creativity and led by a real veteran in the sector: Peter Reynolds. It is the second time that our company enters into a strategic collaboration programme with Peter Reynolds! In 2007, our company joined the Idiom, Inc. programme, where Peter worked. This programme is still in force but now under the control of SDL who purchased Idiom.
