How to import an Excel file to the Terminology Database

  1. Open your Termbase.
  2. Access the following menu option:
    1. In Déjà Vu X: File>Import>File or Database.
    2. In Déjà Vu X2: File>Import>External Data.
    3. In Déjà Vu X3: External Data>Import>Excel.
  3. Select Excel as the import format.
  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 Lemma, 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 Lemma, import them as Translation for Field1.
  11. Click Next, then Finish.

The entries should be added to the end of the Termbase.
