I have translated several Excel spreadsheets with a CAT-tool (SDLX). However, I notice that the 'labels' or 'tags' at the bottom of the worksheets are still in the source language. Can someone please tell me how I can edit them? I think they correspond to the title in the first row of each worksheet, but I don't know how to change them.

Click on the tab with the right mouse button Jul 24, 2003

The names of the worksheets can easily be changed by clicking on the tabs with the right mouse button and then selecting "Rename" in the context menu which appears. I hope it's called "Rename"; I use the German version of Excel.

Found it: right click on the title and rename Jul 24, 2003

Just stumbled across the answer. I needed to right-click on the title which brings up a menu including an option to 'Rename' the sheet. I spent ages on this before, but phrasing my question on Proz.com must have helped to focus my mind...
