Dear All, I know it has been discussed at length, but I could not find any useful suggestion. I have to translate an Excel 2007 (.xlsx) file. I have Trados 7. I cannot make connection between the two applications. Under the Add-in option there is no option to select Trados (or any other third party application). I tried with Excel 2003, no success either. Please help. Many thanks. Janos.

Dear Janos,

it is not possible to use Trados directly in Excel (as opposed to Word).
In order to translate a xlsx file using Trados you have to open the xlsx file in TagEditor and save it as ttx file. Please make sure to keep the original xlsx file in the same folder as the ttx file because this file will be overwritten when saving target.
Furthermore, it is always a good idea to make a copy of both files in a separate folder, translate one or two segments of this ttx file (copy) and test "Save target" so as to see whether you will be able to create the target xlsx file after translation.

If you do not need to translate all content of the xlsx file, you may prepare the xlsx file accordingly, e.g. by masking single rows or columns.

HTH
Martina

Sorry, I do not speak Hungarian Nov 6, 2012

Dear Janos,

since I do not speak Hungarian, I was wondering whether you have another question or whether it was a simple "thank you". If the latter, you're welcome.
Otherwise, please describe your problem in Englishicon_smile.gif

Have a nice evening,
Martina
