Dear all

I am in touch with an outsourcer for a big translation contract; among other files he would like me to translate CSV files.

The sample I received is strange: two lines with only one column.

I tried with CSV Ed, but it doesn't seem to work.

If you have some ideas?

Thanks a lot and have a nice week-end

Madeleine

It worked! Jul 12, 2013

Of course it is not two words but two very long strings.

But I could edit them with Notepad.

This is enough while I am at the test step and perhaps later!

Thanks a lot Sergeï,

Madeleine

Use a CAT Jul 12, 2013

WF Pro, Trados Studio, ...
Without a CAT these files are a real pain.

You can also copy them into Word, but a problem arises when copying them back into Excel (line breaks = different cells), and your client will expect Excel files.

Excel or the multilingual delimited text filter Jul 13, 2013

Try saving the CSV as XLSX,and importing it into memoQ - or try the multilingual delimited text filter, that's for CSV.

Good idea Jul 15, 2013

I'll try; this way I would be able to use MemoQ's termbase content!

Thanks, Itzvàn!
