4 Contact Kontakt
5 Imprint Impressum form.imprint, default.language.source

We expect words for translation to start from line 3

You can add more languages, we only expect labels to be at last position

Labels are optional, there can be more than one label for same word, they just have to be divided by comma (,)

If you add labels, label names will be used for source tags in xml

If you want to use default language word for source and use labels for same word, you can use reserved word default.language.source and add it in labels part

2. Languages

We expect array of language codes, divided by space e.g. en de fr, use same order as in your excel file.

First language in array is source language and will be used for all source tags.
