Problem with bilingual excel file in Trados 2014
Thread poster: cuapula

Jul 4, 2016

Hi everyone, i have a little doubt over here.

A client sent to me a bilingual excel file to review the translation made. The problem i have is that it is a bilingual file with several columns for each language and when i try to open it in Trados all the text appear on the source column.

I have tried to change to CSV but nothing changes. Im using Trados 2014 because the job requires it.

What can i do? any suggestions?

Thanks in advance and good day!

...that a bilingual Excel file should be reviewed directly in Excel. If the client would like you to do the job in Studio they would send you the sdlxliff file, and not xls.
