I have an Excel export from LEAF with about 43 columns. For translation I need columns 3 (Source), 4 (Target) and 5 (Comments for translator).

I save the file as tab delimited txt file (CSV does not work as Trados throws errors when adding the file) and I can convert file to sdlxliff without any problems but the comments do not show up at all when opening the file for translation, although I ticked the comments option under format of tab delimited text under File types.

Anyone got a hint what I possibly missed?

Thanks for the help,
