Hello experts,

As you know, Excel files have many columns unlike Word files and often the text in a particular column is required to be translated and the remaining text is not translated because it contains instructions, context and other things. When I try to translate it with TagEditor, I don't find any method to ascertain which text exactly is to be translated. Even if I highlight the translatable text in Excel file, the highlight is vanished when this file is opened in TagEditor.

Could you suggest a practical solution for this problem?

Thanks and regards,

Chopra
