memoQ content connector (also called Content connector server) is a software module that enables memoQ TMS to import source-language content automatically, without human intervention. Through the content connector, memoQ server can receive content from various sources such as file folders, version control systems, or content management systems in general. In addition, memoQ TMS can also watch for changes: through the content connector, memoQ server can check if the content source contains new or updated materials.
- memoQ server can also automatically export and send back finished translations to the Content connector. The Content connector will make sure that the exported documents are saved to the right folder or to the right place in the content source.
- The Content Connector does not have to be on the same computer as memoQ server; in fact, the Content Connector is usually closer to the content source. memoQ server always assumes that it needs to reach out to the Content Connector through the network.
The memoQ Content Connector comes with two types of licenses: Standard or Enterprise. With a Standard license, you can use Content Connector from the memoQ desktop app. With an Enterprise license, you can use Content connector with your memoQ server, too.
For file system connectors, the Content Connector and the chosen folder need to be in the same network.
