Export data formats


PhraseExpander supports two formats for exporting data:


1.PhraseExpander Glossary file (ipglo): this is the standard format, keeping all the information related to the phrases. Use this format to create backups of your glossaries or share phrases with other people.

2.CSV file (csv): exports the phrases to a CSV (comma separated values) file that can be read by Excel. This allows to view all the phrases in Excel and possibly reimport to PhraseExpander. Notice that formatting information will be lost when exporting to CSV.
