:star2: Choosing the Right Parser for You:

Deciding between the existing Excel parser and our brand-new XLSX parser boils down to your specific needs and file characteristics.

1. Existing Excel Parser:

  • Best Fit When: Your Excel files align seamlessly with the syntax supported by Transifex.
  • How It Works: You need to adjust your XLSX files according to Transifex syntax. Once translations are done, all languages can be exported in a single file, each sheet dedicated to a specific language. However, if your source content spans multiple sheets in the same XLSX file, note that only the first sheet following the required syntax will be parsed for translation. Additional sheets in the same file will be ignored.

2. New XLSX Parser:

  • Best Fit When: You’re dealing with Excel files featuring diverse structures and formatting needs.
  • How It Works: You enjoy unparalleled flexibility as the new parser can intelligently parse all sheets containing source content. Once translations are completed, each language is exported in a separate XLSX file.

If your files can easily adjust to Transifex syntax and you prefer a unified export with specific language sheets, the existing Excel parser may be your preferred choice. On the other hand, if your Excel files have diverse structures or specific formatting requirements, the new XLSX parser offers enhanced flexibility and efficiency.

In essence, the choice depends on the nature of your Excel files and your preferences in terms of structure and flexibility.
