How to Export (Guide)

Language Reactor’s export feature is a mess. It’s hard to set up, especially for people who aren’t Anki-savvy. It just doesn’t make any sense why LR doesn’t use the AnkiConnect addon to export… it’s mind-blowing.

Okay, I’ve vented. There isn’t much I or anyone else can do about the slow development and forgotten features of LR.

  1. Access Export Options:
  • Navigate to your Saved Items within Language Reactor.
  • Click on “Export” located at the top right corner.
  1. Available Export Formats:
  • Language Reactor offers five export formats: Print, Excel, Anki, CSV, and JSON.
  1. Last Export Record:
  • Language Reactor automatically records your last export date for each export type.
  1. Selecting Export Type:
  • Choose CSV as your export type.
  • Ensure to tick the option “Include Media” to include audio and images from your saved items.
  • Click on “Export”.
  1. Browser Notifications:
  • Be attentive to any browser notifications, as some browsers may block the export popup.
  1. Saving the Export:
  • Save the exported zip file to your preferred location, such as the Downloads folder.
  1. Preparation for Anki Import:
  • Extract the contents of the zip file.
  • Download the Anki Template compatible with Language Reactor’s CSV format from Language Learning with Netflix.
  • Double-click the downloaded .apkg file to add it to Anki.
  1. Importing into Anki:
  • In Anki, navigate to “File” → “Import”.
  • Select the exported items.csv file.
  • Verify that the imported items align correctly.
  1. Restoring Images and Audio:
  • After import, you may notice missing images and audio.
  • Locate the “media” folder within your export file from Language Reactor.
  • Copy the contents of this folder to your Anki folder. (Typically found at “C:\Users%userProfile%\AppData\Roaming\Anki2\User 1” on Windows OS.)

By following these steps, you can efficiently export your Language Reactor data and seamlessly integrate it into Anki for further language learning.
