I have numerous dictionary entries in word like this (silly classmates who only know about word :) ):

à la – ‘’pripravljeno na …. način’’

a la Bourgeoise – “pripravljeno na način družine’’

a la Broche – pripravljeno na nabodalu nad ognjem

Is there any way to get them into excel into two separate cells (besides manually?)
 

Excel Facts

Test for Multiple Conditions in IF?
Use AND(test, test, test, test) or OR(test, test, test, ...) as the logical_test argument of IF.

Try using the "Data/Text to Columns" from the menu bar. Then use the delimiter "-" to separate the text into columns.
