Microsoft Excel (XLSX)

Microsoft Excel workbooks are tricky to import because they contain much more than translatable text. Usually, only a small part of an Excel workbook is translatable.

There are many settings that help you select what to translate and what to ignore.

This window is for workbooks from Excel 2007 or higher: Use it to import .xlsx files.

To import multilingual tables: Use the Multilingual Excel filter. Use the Multilingual Excel filter, also, if the translation must notreplace the source text but must go into another column.

How to get here

  1. Start importing a workbook from Excel 2007 or higher (an.xlsx file).
  2. In the Document import options window, select the Excel workbooks, and click Change filter & configuration.
  3. The Document import settings window appears. From the Filter drop-down list, choose Microsoft Excel filter.

    Importable ranges and general options tab with checkbox and radio buttons.

What can you do?

When you finish

In the Document import options window: Click OK again to start importing the documents.

  • If this is a cascading filter, you can change the settings of another filter in the chain: Click the name of the filter at the top of the window.
