Hello all,

I am having quite a big problem with my terminology import.

I recently formatted (with the * and so forth) an excel file with over 1000 russian word entries.


However when i convert it to .txt (tab delimited) the russian words become lines and therefore stay lines in WFP .

I know it is more an excel problem than a WFP problem, but i don't know where to ask so ...


Can somebody help me ?

Hi François,

Instead of exporting as tab delimited text you might try copying the applicable cells from word in to a text file. The columns act as tabs between the source and target terms and and just save as UTF encoding. I hope that works for you.

Thanks,
Andrew
