Worked like a charm!

Simple … but does exactly what it claims. Not sure why the WordPress exporter doesn’t provide this simple functionality but it doesn’t. We used it to export both English and Spanish taxonomies. We had to select the language after they were imported but that was a minor task. It even spotted corrupt data and would hang up and not save that export group so we knew to create those taxonomies manually. Once you have the narrowed down data exported you can merely use the WP Importer without the need for an Import plug-in. (All-import charges you U.S. $99 for selective taxonomy import. Plus our database is so big we can’t use the WP exporter.) This solved the problem without having to go that route. Loved it.

Lifesaver

When you’re up working at 4am and you need to migrate a ton of terms from a custom taxonomy, this plugin is a freaking lifesaver!
Long live Damian!

Works a treat

I was a little suspicious because it hadn’t been updated for ages, but it does exactly what it says on the tin. Very handy little tool. Thank you

Works like a charm in 4.4.2

I had a taxonomy with just under 1,000 terms. Creating the initial taxonomy was a daunting task that took an entire weekend. With this great little plugin, I was able to copy the taxonomy to similar site in just minutes! Thank you!
