Translation export and import - Can I delete rows?

I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but the Search functionality of these forums has stopped working for me. It tells me it can't find anything matching my search term with anything I put in. (I even tried the word "the".) I have tried on multiple computers, and had a coworker do the same, and it just don't work.

In any case, my question is, if I export all the text for translation, is it okay to delete some of the rows? I would prefer to delete some of the rows with variables in then so my translator doesn't have to deal with that. But I don't want to screw up the import. Can I do this and still import it back in with the translation?

Hi Wendy,

Since I haven't done translation, I can't speak to that part of your question. But until someone does, I thought I'd at least tell you how people are searching in Articulate since, as you've discovered, the search within the forums isn't working so well.

First, one of the support engineers created a site called Articusearch which is working really well.

Also, people are using Google in the way suggested by staff member Adrian Dean here

Hope those search tools will help you find what you need. Also, though, someone with more knowledge about translation may jump in as well.
