Vlookup: save your localization day!

"You are two weeks into the project and a good deal of translation has already been done, when the client writes you with an updated source. “We just edited a couple of lines. Please copy your translations and continue on the new file”

Then you open the file and you find out that the order of each single line has been changed. “Copying your translations” now means losing a couple of hours finding and pasting each single line, eyes wide open to be sure not to make mistakes."

The answer: aligning and auto-translation made easy in Excel through Vlookup
