File Import Settings

CSV (Comma Separated Values)

In-context preview can only be generated for a maximum of 200 columns in an imported file. Files with more than 200 columns will display the warning In-context preview was not generated. This limit does not apply to the columns that are marked Hidden in the original file.

File Types

  • .CSV

Import Options

  • Use HTML subfilter

    Imports HTML tags contained in the file. Tags can then be used with HTML File Import Settings.

  • Column delimiter

    Fields in CSV files are usually separated by commas or semicolons, but other delimiters may also be used. Set which delimiter has been used.

  • Import specific columns only

    File may contain columns with text that does not require translation. Specify which columns are to be imported.

  • Import specific rows only

    File may contain rows with text that does not require translation. Specify which rows are to be imported.

  • Context key (column)

    Specify a context key that is saved with the segment to the Translation Memory and used for match context.

  • Context note (column)

    Columns are set as context notes (B,C). Notes will be displayed on separate lines.

  • Maximum length (column)

    Sets the maximum length of the translation. For more columns, enter letters separated by commas with no spaces (A,B,C).

Multilingual CSV file

Multilingual files are imported as multiple bilingual jobs with languages mapped before import. They are represented with multilingual_xlsx.png in the Jobs Table. If imported into several target languages, the Completed file is composed of all target languages.

  • Use HTML subfilter

    Imports HTML tags contained in the file. Tags can then be used with HTML File Import Settings.

  • Segment multilingual CSV

    Text is segmented by a general segmentation rule rather than one segment per cell.

    Caution

    Applying Segment multilingual CSV to a file that contains target text may result in a different number of segments in the source than in the target.

  • Source (column)

    Use lowercase or capital letters. For more columns, enter letters separated by commas with no spaces (1,2,3).

  • Import specific rows only

    Enter rows to be imported (1,4,7).

  • Context key (column)

    Specify a context key that is saved with the segment to the Translation Memory and used for match context.

  • Context note (column)

    Columns are set as context notes (B,C). Notes will be displayed on separate lines.

  • Maximum length (column)

    Sets the maximum length of the translation. For more columns, enter letters separated by commas with no spaces (A,B,C).

  • Convert to Memsource tags

    Apply regular expressions to convert specified text to tags.
