Spreadsheet Glossary Converter

You can convert glossaries stored in Spreadsheet format. An instruction guide is available for download along with a collection of sample spreadsheets. You will be asked which columns of the Spreadsheet represent which TBX-Min data categories (such as a ‘Source Language’ column or a ‘Comment’ column). Please note that in order for the converter to work, column headers of some sort must exist. You will also be asked about some information about the document in general (which gets used in the Header of the TBX-Min file).

*TBX-Min supports single language as well as two language glossaries, rather than being strictly bilingual. This converter only requires a source language. This feature can be used to pull out individual language glossaries one (or two if you want language pairs) at a time. If you want to do this, simply state the desired language to be the “source” here and then label the appropriate column header on the next page as ‘Source Language’*.

*The current version of this converter has some issues with encoding.  If the file you choose is not UTF-8 encoded, it may or may not work as expected.  We are working to fix this as quickly as we can.

***NOTICE*** – We have recently found errors in the program that seem to be inhibiting to program from working properly. We are currently working to fix the issues, and we apologize for any inconvenience.

Only Excel Spreadsheets or CSV files (.xlsx, .xls, .csv, or .txt [tab delimited format]) are supported currently, however .xlsx or .xls are recommended.

Convert Spreadsheet to TBX-Min:

Source Language* (must be ISO 639 two-letter code i.e. ‘en’,’fr’, etc.):

Target Language (must be ISO 639 two-letter code i.e. ‘en’,’fr’, etc.):

Glossary ID* (a number preceded by a letter such as ‘G’ will suffice. i.e. “G001”):
