Server Administrator - Language Terminal

On this pane, you can connect your memoQ TMS to Language Terminal, so that Language Terminal users can log in to memoQ TMS. You need to have a Language Terminal account for that. The owner of the Language Terminal account will be able to log on, as well as other Language Terminal users who are listed as vendors to this account. If the Language Terminal account is an organizational one, the additional users listed within the account can also log in to memoQ TMS.

In Language Terminal itself, you can invite Language Terminal users to access your memoQ TMS using their Language Terminal accounts. To do this, first you need to invite them to your Language Terminal account as vendor, or you must add them there as members of your organization.

Once this is done, you can connect your memoQ TMS to your Language Terminal account. From this point on, all your vendors and organization members will be able to log on to the memoQ TMS using their Language Terminal user names and passwords. Of course, you can invite new vendors or add new organization members, and they will also become able to log on to your memoQ TMS.

This is called single sign-on (SSO): These vendors and organization members do not need a user account on the memoQ TMS itself. The user accounts from Language Terminal will appear on the User management pane of Server Administrator.

Managing memoQ TMS or memoQ TMS cloud: To do this, you need to be a member of the Administrators group on the memoQ TMS or memoQ TMS cloud, and have the project manager edition of memoQ.

You must have an organizational profile on Language Terminal: Before you connect the memoQ TMS to your Language Terminal account, you need to convert this profile into an organizational one (if you have not done so already).

  4. From this point on, invited Language Terminal users will be listed everywhere you need to choose from users on this memoQ TMS. You will be able to add them to online projects, grant them permissions over resources, or include them in groups.

    However, you are not ready yet: You cannot track your online projects in Language Terminal - not yet.

This should be the same user name and password that you used for connecting the server to Language Terminal.

  5. Under Internal users and vendors, click Re-synchronize. memoQ TMS gets the list of users and vendors from the Language Terminal profile of your organization.
  6. Click Merge memoQ TMS users with Language Terminal users and vendors. The Merge users window opens.

  15. Click Close.

Administrators and project managers must register their Language Terminal logins in memoQ: Instruct each project manager to open the My memoQ page in their copies of memoQ, and add their Language Terminal logins (which is now the same as their memoQ TMS login). From this point on, they must log on to the memoQ TMS using their Language Terminal account.

Now you are ready to track your online projects in Language Terminal.

Synchronization: memoQ TMS does not reach out to Language Terminal each time a Language Terminal user logs in. Instead, memoQ TMS keeps a list of invited Language Terminal users (vendors or organization members) locally, and synchronizes this list with Language Terminal every now and then. So, when a new vendor or organization member is added to the memoQ TMS's Language Terminal profile, she will not be able to log in immediately. If you need the new users quickly, you can open the Language Terminal pane from Server Administrator, and click Re-synchronize to force a synchronization right away.
