Can someone tell me how to convert the TXT/CSV file into SDLTM in such a way that the 3rd column ends up in the field "Note" with the value set to the Celex numbers. I've played around with Xbench, AF Aligner, Olifant, Glossary Converter etc., so far without success.
Thank you! Mark

P.S. I know I can add a custom field later, but 1 txt/csv file contains dozens of different Celex numbers.
