- Paste it in the first column of a spreadsheet (e.g.: OpenOffice Calc).
- Create the second column with the same number of lines, with some characters which won't be present neither in the old pages names nor in the new (e.g.: "string to replace after by \n").
- Paste your new pages names (converted in ASCII) into the third column.
- Copy the three columns into a file (e.g.: called "articles_pairs.txt").
