The order of the columns is not important.
It is not necessary to name the columns, but if you want, you can do that.

The minimum number of columns is two, the column with source words and column with translations. The file may contain unlimited number of columns, but the application can only read the following columns:

  • Words for your native language
  • Transcriptions 
  • Genders 
  • Examples 
  • Foreign words
  • Transcriptions for foreign words
  • Genders for foreign words
  • Examples for foreign words

Please save your file in .xlsx or .xls format (it can be done in Microsoft Office, in Libre office, in Open Office or in Google Spreadsheet).
Copy the file to your phone and import in the app via the menu item “Import” (follow instructions in the app).
