Until recently, I was using a competing system to LingQ, which allows me to export vocabulary. Now that I have switched to a paid membership of LingQ, I wish to import this vocabulary into LingQ,.
Alas, I am confused about the format required by LingQ’s “Import Vocabulary” feature.
As far as I can tell, LingQ requires the format to be comma-separated, with each “row” being “word, hint, phrase”. Is this correct?
If so, it causes me quite a problem since many of my vocabulary entries contain commas (for example, quite a lot of “hints” have multiple comma separated words in them. For alternation definitions of a word. Likewise, a very high percentage of phrases do.
In addition, LingQ itself supports LingQ for groups of words (by highlighting several words and then providing a LingQ for them)/ These groups themselves may contain a comma, which makes me confused about they can imported too.
At the very least, is it possible to support “tab separated” format, rather than comma separated?
If not, I am pretty much screwed, and will probably have wasted the one year membership I recently paid for, since having to recreate manual LingQs for thousands of words will take me months of effort (rather than the thirty minutes of importing I had expected).
Thanks a lot,
