Wordfast Pro glossary from Word table or Excel sheet

Existing terminology in a Word table or in an Excel sheet can be easily imported into a Wordfast Pro glossary, as long as the table/sheet has two columns (source terms, target terms) or three columns (source terms, target terms, comments).

A Word table first needs to be converted to text (function found under the Layout tab, once the table is selected), with tabs (default) as separators. The resulting document must be saved as plain text, with Unicode as the encoding (UTF-8 also works). The saved text file can be imported into a Wordfast Pro glossary.

An Excel sheet can be saved directly as Unicode text, after which it can be imported into a Wordfast Pro glossary.

This video shows how to do it with a sample Finnish-Russian term list.
