Hi!

I am having troubles importing certain columns from the Excell sheet to my MemoQ. I have selected the columns which I wish to import: B column as a source text and C column would be my translation text. Here comes the problem: I can select the "Translation", but MemoQ doesn't save it. Therefore, it doesn't import the document as there is no "Translation" column.

Indicate the source column Apr 8

Remember that after specifying “Meaning of selected column” as “Translation” you have to indicate the source column in the “For column” drop-down list.

HTH.

When selecting "Translation" the option "source coulmn" remains locked. Apr 8

Thank you Tomasz,

I have tried this, but it doesn't give me an option. If I select "Context", "Source Text" or basically anything else, it works just fine. The only thing it doesn't let me select is the "Translation".

I have also tried another option: basic 2 language text, but the Excell file is locked, therefore it just imports the first sheet.

Works for me Apr 8

I use this filter several times a month and it simply works. You must be making some basic mistake. Please have a look at the instruction at https://docs.memoq.com/current/en/Places/multilingual-excel-and-delimit.html

Good luck!

First you say: I can select the "Translation"
Then you say: The only thing it doesn't let me select is the "Translation".
Which one of these statements is correct?
You should select B and mark it as Source text. Then you select C and mark it as Translation/For column B/Target language.
What is a 'basic 2 language text'? Which Excell file is locked (and where)?
Can you attach a screenshot?

Hi!

Thank you! I have solved it.

Alternatively, I tried to import it as a bilingual document, where you have an option to say: all columns B are "Source Text" and all columns C are "Translation". In this case, it imported just the first sheet. When I checked the Excell, if it's possible to save every sheet as a separate document, I noticed that this was not an option, as the document was protected for this kind of changes.
