Hi,
Today I received a file with the extension .op. This is suppossed to be a glossary. I had to change its extension to .txt and just then I could open this using Notepad first and then Excel.

Do you know what kind of files these are? Can I use this with Multiterm, for instance?

I really have no idea what this is. Thanks a lot in advance!

Paola C.

What's in it? May 11, 2006

A quick Google pulls up up some items (http://filext.com/detaillist.php?extdetail=OP)

But what's inside of it is a key. You said you had to change its extension to .txt and open it using Notepad first and then Excel, so that implies it's some kind of tab- or comma-delimited text.

I suspect it may have been a hand-typed extension and a typo at the same time, or someone's short form for brevity, as in a text file called "operations glossary" was turned in to "gloss.op".

I made it to turn it into to an excel file May 11, 2006

Hi,
Finally, I managed to turn this .op file into a .txt and then I replace some parts of the text untill I had a 3 colums file, with Source, Translation and context field. Using filters with Excel now I can use this with no major problems.
Thanks for your answer
