Hi

due some issues with my translators I was forced to provide them some excel document. What I noticed I can select an entry in a language column and can select all entries via ctrl+a, do copy ctrl+c and paste is ctrl+v into excel.

What didn't work is the same thing for the context column and notes column.
Woudl be fine if you make it work there also. Smile

thanks and kind regards
Sven

We could possibly support this if you select the whole row(s). I will add this to our feature request list.

Version 3.4.0 has just been released and supports copy/paste of entire selected translation rows (select the entire row by clicking on the row header). It will copy the translation context, all the displayed cultures and the comments (if currently displayed) to the clipboard along with a header. These can then be pasted into Excel or other spreadsheet.

You can also copy and paste row data from Excel back into Globalizer. You need to include the header data in the selection (so Globalizer knows which columns are for which culture). Globalizer will then use the translation context to copy the data into the correct rows.

Note that there are some limitations due to the way Excel handles text formatted clipboard data. In particular Excel does not handle copying to text properly when the cell text data begins with a quote ("). In this case the text should be escaped by quoting it - but Excel doesn't - resulting in the initial quote getting dropped.

Thanks for the changes. Yes I don't like Excel for this. It has also problems if the text starts with something that looks like a formula... Sad
But I can handle it.
