hello guys,
I am new here and really glad to find such a forum.
I am a localizer and I have some question about csv files.

eml_egoods_download;"Download E-products";;E-Mail

in this string can I translate the beginning (eml)

also, is it OK to have a semicolon instead of comma? is there a difference?

Has the character _ any special meaning?:confused:

forgive my ignorance, but I do not want to make mistakes that's why I ask.

thanks in advance
:p

In Unix we use colon and its usage is better than a comma or semicolon. You can use whatever delimiter you want but anything else may cause your string searches more difficult.
