The linguist user role allows a user to translate (or revise) a bilingual document created in Memsource Cloud. Typically, a translation agency would create linguist accounts for its translators or editors and would supply the necessary login and other information to the linguist.

How to Get Started

The first thing a linguist needs is their Memsource Cloud login information. This should be provided to the linguist by e.g. a translation agency:

Sign in to Memsource Cloud
