Hi,

could you please help me make an analysis and translate with Studio an Excel file with 10 worksheets?

Thank you very much for your help!

Monica

Is something wrong? Feb 19, 2016

What happens if you "Translate single document", choose the TM, click Finish and look at the Report? The Software should do all that is needed.

It doesn't work Feb 19, 2016

I can't open the document because of several sheets I suppose.

Any idea?

Thanks

Error message? Feb 19, 2016

What error message do you get? Why do you think that the number of worksheets is responsible?

I remember that worksheet titles shouldn't contain any special characters, maybe that's worth checking?

In Project Settings, Feb 19, 2016

check if Excel is ticked in the list of file types (Project Settings - File Types - right pane).
If you have an excel file with all tabs for translation, you should tick either Excel 2000-2003 or 2007-2013 (or both) options depending on your version of Excel.

Trados will automatically detect your file and import all tabs for translation.
-----------
Another case is when you have a multi-tab excel where you need only two columns per tab, say, tab 1 column C is original, column F is translation; tab 2 column D is original, column M is translation, etc... In this case, [theoretically] you need Bilingual Excel file type (with Excel 2000-2003 and 2007-2013 unchecked).
However it only works for 1-tab bilingual excel. I could not add a multitab excel file with Bilingual Excel filter.

I had problems too Feb 20, 2016

I always use Wordfast Pro for Excel. But I tried to load a big multisheet file a customer sent me into Studio 2015. It took ages to load and suddenly Studio vanished and I had to re-start it. No damage was done, but Studio seems not to be able to do this file type.
