Xls, xlsx, txt and csv files are supported for input. Output is usually to the Excel default format (xls for Office 2003, xlsx for Office 2007 and later), but can be configured to be another format instead.

Txt input files are expected to be tab separated, csv files comma separated. Other delimiters are currently not possible.

Both txt and csv files are written in Unicode encoding, to support all languages. Note that Microsoft Excel will export csv files in ANSI, thereby breaking non-Latin based languages. It can open Unicode files, though, so there should be no problem with the GlossaryConverter output.

Input tables need to have the language and field names in the first row. If a name is equivalent to a known language name (see table of supported languages, upper/lower case differences are ignored), the language is used automatically. For all other cases, users can choose a language interactively or configure a column name/language list.

You can have any number of languages in a table; field columns are also permitted, and unwanted columns can be skipped, see Field Selection.

Excel can be written (and read) in two formats, handling synonyms in different ways, see Synonyms and Synonyms in multi-line format.
