Export Items

This dialog allows you to export project items to the following formats:

  • TMX files
  • Tab-delimited text files
  • Excel files

The Selection section has the following fields:

  • All items in project. It exports all items in all glossaries in the project. This is useful for example to export all the items to TMX to import them in a translation memory.
  • All items in a glossary. It exports all items that belong to an specific glossary or dictionary of the project. This is useful for example when only the newly translated items of the ongoing translation files are exported for a targeted spot check.
  • Displayed items. It exports solely the items that are displayed by the query. The reference can have more items matching the query, and only the displayed ones are exported.

The Filtering section has the following fields:

  • Translated items. Only the items flagged as already translated will be exported. This option can be further filtered to export only the Pretranslated Items or only the Newly Translated Items.
  • Untranslated items. This allows exporting only the untranslated items. This is useful for example to feed a translation machine engine.

You can also remove the repetitions from the exported file to reduce its size by checking the Remove repetitions in exported file check box, or exclude the ICE (In-Context Exact matches) segments by checking the Exclude ICE segments check box.

The Output section has the following fields.

  • Format. You can choose TMX Memory, Tab-delimited Text File, XLSX Excel File, or DOCX Word File. Each option selected has different additional fields, which will be described below.
  • File Name. Specify here the name of the file that will contain the exported items.

If you select TMX Memory in the Format field, the following fields appear:

  • Source. Specify here the ISO language code of the source language, for example, en-us.
  • Target. Specify here the ISO language code of the target language, for example, es-es.

If you are unsure about which code you can enter here, you can click the ellipsis () button to select the language and country in the Language Selection dialog.

If you select Tab-delimited Text File or XLSX Excel File in the Format field, the following fields appear:

  • Use text instead of numbers for ‘Glossary Type’ and ‘Item Type’ fields. Besides the Source and Target fields, the Tab-delimited Text File and XLSX Excel File exports also add a few additional columns with more information on the entry. You have the choice to store numbers or text in two of these additional fields.
  • Add a header in first row. Check this check box to include a first line with the names of the fields.

If you select DOCX Word File, the format of the report generated will be the same obtained by choosing Tools->Export Ongoing Translation to MS Word.
