Hi,

I'm looking for CAT tools that support Excel files with multiple tabs (other than memoQ). In this specific case my Excel files consist of +20 tabs, whereas source and target columns differ from tab to tab (sometimes multiple source and target columns for each tab).
Any suggestion would be much appreciated!

Best regards,

Em

Why 'other than memoQ'? Nov 24, 2020

As far as I know, memoQ is the only CAT tool that can perfectly handle multiple worksheets with different source and target columns. I guess you have some reason to exclude memoQ indeed, but just out of curiosity what is wrong with it?

I frequently translate Excel files with multiple worksheets, from ITA to ENG, using CafeTran

@ Stepan: Yes, and I really like working with memoQ, however, I'm looking for a more affordable solution.

@Tom, I actually tried CafeTran but as far as I can see you can't select different columns for each sheet. Am I wrong?

Partly. Cafetran will break the whole thing into segments - regardless of what language they are in. You can then simply translate the segments you want to translate, and leave the others as they are.
