File description

In computing, a comma-separated values (CSV) file stores tabular data (numbers and text) in plain text. Each line of the file is a data record. Each record consists of one or more fields, separated by commas. The use of the comma as a field separator is the source of the name for this file format.

Good to know

  • To work with POEditor, .csv files need to be encoded in UTF-8, like all our supported formats.
  • POEditor parses 5 columns, beginning with the first row. The order is term, translation (optional), context (optional), reference (optional), comment (optional).
    On export, if a Default Reference Language is set on the project, an extra column is added to the file with the strings in this language (column F). On import, the 6th column is ignored.
  • Since POEditor accepts only one translation for each term, work with plurals is not possible in the case of CSV files.
