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).
  • Since POEditor accepts only one translation for each term, work with plurals is not possible in the case of CSV files.
