Hello,
I have saved a tab-delimited UTF-8 text file into an Excel 2013 *.xlsx file. If I chose to import this file in a Trados 2015 project, the file will be processed as a normal Excel file, but I want it to be processed with the 'Bilingual Excel file" File Type of Studio. How do I achieve this?

Thank you,
Mike

[EDIT]
It's in the project settings, the checkboxes...

Uncheck Excel boxes Aug 14, 2016

If the Excel tab delimited filter is below the "normal" Excel in the list, you need to move the tab-delimited file type above the normal excel, or uncheck the latter. I prefer unchecking. This will leave no choice for Trados but to process it as bilingual excel.

Thank you Stepan, Aug 14, 2016

in fact that's what I figured out.
I must say that I've never made any setting changes in the File Types because the default settings have always worked for me.
The Bilingual Excel type is very useful for maintain operations (also of TM content) or to exactly keep the segmentation of a source text. I had problems with truncated - or not imported text - with the Tab-delimited Text file type (Studio 2015).

Greets,
Mike
