Importing is very powerful feature of Sisulizer. It makes it possible to import existing translations from different sources to either Sisulizer project or translation memory. Sisulizer can import data from several sources:
When you use Project Wizard to create a new project Sisulizer can automatically find existing translations and import them to the project. If Sisulizer finds existing translations it will show a message box during the Project Wizard asking if the user wants to import existing translations. If you click Yes Sisulizer imports the translations.

You can also import existing translations into existing project (e.g. after you have created the project). Use File | Import or Column | Import menus to start Import Wizard that lets you select the file you want to import.

Sisulizer can directly open project files of other localization tools. When you open such a file (File | Open) Sisulizer first creates a new Sisulizer project file that contains the same source file and then imports data from localized files created by you previous localization tool or from project file of you previous localization tool.
You can import data from glossaries such as TMX, text, Excel files or from database tables. Choose File | Import or Column | Import to start Import Wizard. Sisulizer can import data from following file formats and databases.
