Excel Importer

Overview. This importer plug-in adds support for importing translations from Excel files. The plug-in requires that Excel (Office) 2000 or 2003 is installed. If you are using newer version of Excel you can always save your file in .xls format. Currently .xlsx format is not supported.


This plug-in is available as a separate plug-in. To get an evaluation version of this plug-in, contact sales(at)multilizer.com.


The Excel Importer supports the following:

  • Importing of translations from the user-defined sheet
  • Specifying columns that contain native and translated texts.
  • Importing of comments.
