Programm - Wordfast Pro 3.2.2

I also have a glossary in csv format.

Trying to import glossary in csv format into the Wordfast but it only gives me the choice between .txt or .tbx.

Isn't Wordfast meant to be able to import csv files as well?

TIA for any suggestions!

…the file name extension from .csv to .txt. Make sure that you save your glossary with tabs for text separator and nothing for text delimiter. And, as I remember, it must be UTF-16LE (if it fails, try UTF-8).
