I'm very new to CAT tool and Swordfish. I was sent an excel file containing the client terminology database (3 columns Source, Target comment).
How can I import that file to swordfish to create my term database and use it for this translation ?
Can I do it directly in swordfish, do I need to use stingray or anchovy ?

Thank you for your help

You can export the .xls file as CSV using Excel.

Once you have a CSV file, you can either import it into a database using Swordfish or you can use Anchovy to generate a GlossML file that can be imported into a Swordfish database.

If you generate a glossary first using Anchovy, you can check the data to be imported.
