Does anybody know about a possibility to translate an SQlite database using Studio 2014? Is there an import filter available? Maybe someone knows if such a filter is already being developed?
Thank you.

... as a sqlite database could look like absolutely anything with no indication of what should be translated and what should not even if we could recognise the field names in the database.

Your best bet would be export the contents to something more appropriate. sqlite manager can do this as txt, csv or xml. xml sounds favourite and then you could create an xml filetype to match the elements in the file correctly.

For people not familiar with databases, I'd suggest or a similar stand-alone app:

What it is
DB Browser for SQLite is a high quality, visual, open source tool to create, design, and edit database files compatible with SQLite.

It is for users and developers wanting to create databases, search, and edit data. It uses a familiar spreadsheet-like interface, and you don't need to learn complicated SQL commands.

Controls and wizards are available for users to:

Create and compact database files
Create, define, modify and delete tables
Create, define and delete indexes
Browse, edit, add and delete records
Search records
Import and export records as text
Import and export tables from/to CSV files

Import and export databases from/to SQL dump files
Issue SQL queries and inspect the results
Examine a log of all SQL commands issued by the application

What it is not
This program is not a visual shell for the sqlite command line tool. It does not require familiarity with SQL commands. It is a tool to be used both by developers and by end users, and it must remain as simple to use as possible in order to achieve its goals.
