Upload Excel Translation Memory Files

It is now possible to upload Excel (.xls, .xlsx) translation memory (TM) files into your TM-Town account. TM-Town accepts both bilingual Excel translation memory files as well as multilingual Excel translation memory files.

Excel Translation Memory Formats

Your Excel file should contain the data you would like to import on the first sheet. Data on other sheets will not be imported. The source segment should be in column A with the ISO 639-1 two-letter code for the source language in cell A1. The target segments follow the same pattern starting in column B. If your file has one target language it should be in Column B with the ISO 639-1 two-letter code for the target language in cell B1.

Bilingual file with language codes in the header (.xls or .xlsx)

Multilingual file with language codes in the header (.xls or .xlsx)

For a list of all of the different file types TM-Town accepts, please see the TM-Town Getting Started guide.
