I need to analyze and translate .json files. I have SDL Studio 2009 and 2011 and WFP. Can anyone confirm that one of these tools can handle .json files and if so how?

Thanks in advance, for your help,

Wordfast Pro can translate JSON files Jun 5, 2013

Dear Valerie,

Wordfast Pro can translate JSON files if you have the right conversion rules file, which is just a TXT file, but with extension *.properties. Go to Edit menu > Preferences > Formats > New > XML Filter. Give it a proper name, and click "OK". Then, use the [...] button to browser for the "Conversion rules" (*.properties) file. Make sure the "Extension" textbox shows *.json and save the settings (OK). Now, you should be able to open the JSON file in WFP (File menu > Open file).

The properties file should include something like:

paragraphPrefix.0=: ?"

However, be careful that JSON files can differ slightly; so you have to try that first. If you need further help, please let me know.

Kind regards,
