Supported languages

The table below contains a full list of languages that memoQ supports.

The main language code is the 3-letter one, this is what memoQ uses in file names by default. However, you can set up export rules or name mappings that contain the two-letter codes: those are listed as well.

Some languages are target-only: There are some languages that memoQ cannot use as a source language, so you cannot translate from these languages, only into them. This is because these languages are written in a script that does not mark the end or beginning of sentences, and memoQ cannot possibly break up the text into sensible segments. The following languages cannot be used as source languages, only target ones: Amharic, Burmese, Karen, Kayah (Myanmar), Lao, Mon, Shan, Thai, Tigrigna.

To set up non-Latin scripts: On the Quick access toolbar, click the Options  icon. In the list, click Appearance. Choose an item from the Chinese font family, Japanese font family, or Korean font family dropdown. For other languages, click the Other scripts... link. In the Font family for other scripts window, find your language and choose a font family from its dropdown.
