Hi guys,

I am using SDL Trados 2014. I want to convert Xliff files (with both the source and the target) to Excel documents (.xls). Is there any APP available for that or if the function is already provided by the SDL Trados 2014? I know there is an APP called SDL Xliff Converter, but that is for Trados 2009 and is no longer available. Thanks. I really appreciate your help.

Sincerely,
Yehmin

SDL XLIFF Converter for Microsoft Office? Aug 12, 2015

I have Studio 2015, and there is an SDL XLIFF Converter for Microsoft Office in the package. I haven't tried it myself, so I guess that's what you are looking for. I would have thought it also is included with Studio 2014.

And by the way, if that doesn't quite work the way you want, you could export the file for Bilingual Review: Rightclick on the file in the Files view, > Batch tasks > Export for Bilingual Review

Then you get a Word table with the contents of the file, which you could easily copy over to an Excel file.

Exactly. It has been part of the core product since Studio 2011. (That's why the Open Exchange app is only for Studio 2009.)

Yehmin, to export the sdlxliff as an Excel file, simply go to welcome, click on the app, go to settings and select 'excel file'.

I normally use the classic method: manual Excel table creating method in the following steps.
1. Open a blank MS Word document
2. Copy source texts of Sdlxliff to Word
3. In Word, convert entire texts into table.
4. In Word, add another column on the right of table.
5. Copy target texts of Sdlxliff to Word table by pasting all table cells.
6. Save Word as Excel table.
Voila!!!

I'm surprised that you recommend a 6-step method, Soonthon, when there's a built-in app that does it in 1.

Thank you all very very much! Aug 12, 2015

Hi everyone,

You are very very helpful. I have used SDL Trados 2014 for more than a year, but it is only until today that I learn about the APP from the "Welcome" (WOW). That's why no more converter app is needed. Thank you all again and again.

Sincerely,
Yehmin
