Hello Mourad,

just wanted to say thanks for your great service on translating the excel functions: Thank you!


Thanks, Daniel :-)

Hi! This is a great tool, thanks!
Sometimes there comes a “True” or “False” in my Fomula which I need to translate manually. Would be nice to have that feature.

Hi Buci,

thanks! And thanks for reporting the issue. The translator assumes that the functions in a formula have brackets. That’s why, when using TRUE oder FALSE, the parser does not recognizes them. I will try to find a solution for this problem in the next version planned for summer.

Best regards :-)

cool thanks

This is an excellent and invaluable tool. Many thanks.

Thanks :-)

Thanks for this tool! It help me a lot!

Only a mistake in translation from English to Portuguese (Brazil)-> the keyword SEARCH should be translated to LOCALIZAR, and not PESQUISAR

Best Regards

Hi Ale_rg,

Thanks for the feedback and for the compliment :-)

Microsoft also changed the name of some Excel functions after the release of a service pack. This was the case for SEARCH, which was named PESQUISAR in Excel 2010 and renamed to LOCALIZAR in Excel 2010 SP1. Please refer to the KB-Article from Microsoft here: Function names changed in non-English versions of Excel 2010 SP1.

Best Regards, Mourad

Awesome helping hand in the tool translation jungle. Translation of a formula takes far too long without this tool.

Keep up the good work.

Best regards
