I have a glossary in two column format (source - target) and I want to use it as a Wordfast glossary. How do I do it?

Open the excel file and "save as" tab delimited text only (.txt)

Close the file and answer "yes" to the questions about saving only the first sheet and the warning that you may lose formatting. Close the file, excel will ask if you want to save again, say no.

In Wordfast setup on the "Terminology" tab, select your new glossary and verify that that it is "active".
