I trust one of you can help me out.
I have not worked much with VB before, so ths might be easy...

I am working on a prop. software localisation in VB 6, right in the string editor. Now having noticed, that there are MANY repeats and similarities in the terms, I decided to export the string table into Excel, work with Trados and import the file again.

I figued out how to export the string table, but am tired of looking for a way to import the table again...

Any help out there?

Ta

Henrik

Hello,

I used to program in VB6.0 for a while, though I cannot remember any option for exporting its properties into Excel etc. (At least in the MS Visual Studio IDE).

Let me know what editor you used for editing the software strings and what was the procedure that you applied for exporting the strings.

Regards,

Romuald

Add-ons Nov 17, 2004

If you used an add-on I cannot really help. Probably it is custom made to accommodate specific needs of the user.

If the add-on has a feature for importing exported lines, then it should work like this:
1. you select the lines in the original code to be imported
2. click the Import option and...

If they designed the add-on with an import feature, then it should be quite easy to spoticon_frown.gif
