People,

I have an xls file with some text already translated. Is there a way to make it into a WordFast Translation Memory (and not a WordFast glossary) so that I could receive translations for segments that are like those but not identical to them? Thanks in advance.

Third, shorter way Nov 9, 2009

Copy the two columns into a Word file, then you have a table which can be used directly in PlusTools (no need to align, just hit the "Create TM" button in the +Align tab). Then use the created TM in order to translate the rest of the Excel table.

The two columns must be copied together Nov 9, 2009

If they aren't side by side, first delete (in Excel) all other columns which are in between.
