I work with Studio 2009. I would like to pre-translate a document (Excel) using the Google Translator Toolkit and then create a TM from source and translation using Xbench.

Preferably, I would like to run a segmented file through the machine translation but I am unsure how to copy segments from Studio into an Excel file (or how to export segments in an appropriate file format). When I copy (multiple) segments from Studio into Excel, they do not paste properly.

I can pre-translate the unsegmented file but this will of course lead to fewer matches during the translation process.

Any ideas? I tried searching the forums but to no avail.

Thanks for your input.
