Translate by Dictating with Hey memoQ

Hey memoQ

Wouldn’t it be amazing to translate the same way you ask Siri for advice on a nearby restaurant? With Hey memoQ it is now possible! Hey memoQ relies on Apple’s voice recognition service so you can turn your iPhone or iPad into memoQ’s ear and translate by dictating and giving voice commands in more than 30 languages.

memoQ is the first translation technology provider to release their own voice recognition application. It was developed in iOS because it provides numerous benefits over other platforms: the number of languages supported, the quality of speech recognition, and the quality of support for individual languages for features like dictating punctuation.

Over the last decade, voice recognition technology has become increasingly popular with rise of voice assistants like Alexa from Amazon, Apple’s Siri and Google Now. Because a person can speak more quickly than type, many believe voice recognition technology will eventually replace predictive typing when translating with computer-assisted tools.

Hey memoQ is available for memoQ version 8.7 and offers the following features:

Language Support

Hey memoQ supports more than 30 languages, providing wider access to dictation for professional translators than other applications.

Voice Commands

With Hey memoQ you can access and customize voice commands for hands-free access to repetitive tasks like confirming a sentence or searching and filtering.


For people where typing is difficult, or where visual aids are needed, voice recognition can greatly enhance their productivity. Hey memoQ paves the way for a more accessible translation environment helping those who can’t afford to type all day long.
