    Not sure where to post this; hope I found the right forum.

    I have a set of texts in the source language in Excel. I have translated these into the target language. What I now want to do is match the source language data with my translations.

    Is there any way to tell Excel that "when the text XXX is in column G, row 341, the text XXX is to be inserted into column H, row 341)?

    Just an example.

    In other words, what I want to do is make sure my translations are placed in the column to the right of each source language text.

    in column H you can use IF

    in H341
    =IF(G341="XXX", G341, "what to do if not")

    this will copy G341 into H341 only if G341 contains "XXX"

    =IF(G341="XXX", "YYY", "what to do if not")

    if what you want inserted is different text
