Export project as CSV

Whether you need input from team members or you want a third-party (e.g., translation vendor, marketing, legal, etc.) to review or edit content, it’s common to need to share copy outside of Frontitude.

With Frontitude's Export as CSV feature, you can share content on Frontitude, while allowing others to view the content using traditional tools, like Excel or Google Sheets.
