  1. Open your Translation Memory.
  2. Access the menu option: File>Import>File or Database.
  3. Select Excel 95/97/2000/XP as the import format. This step is not necessary in Déjà Vu X3, since you already specified what format you want to import.
  4. Click Next.
  5. Select the Excel spreadsheet you want to import.
  6. Click Next.
  7. Check the option First rows as field names.
  8. Check the option Import As in Field1, and select Main Segment, and choose the appropriate language.
  9. The encoding can usually be left as it is, since Déjà Vu will guess the correct value, but if you find that some characters are not imported correctly into Déjà Vu, you can choose a different encoding yourself. Déjà Vu shows you a preview of the text it will extract at the bottom of the window, so you can check that the text is being extracted correctly.
  10. Do steps 7 and 9 again for the rest of the fields, but this time, instead of importing them as Main Segment, import them as Translation.
  11. Click Next, then Finish.

The entries should be added to the Translation Memory.
