Xliff Editor - its fast to load, easy to use, and has a low memory footprint. Did we forget to mention Inline tag protection, Search & Replace, Regex search, Fuzzy search, intuitive shortcuts, multiple concurrent file editing and native spell checker. It also has some pretty nice customizations you can use to better suit your workflow.

Not all Xliff editors have been created equally. We've custom built our own XML parser to read even the most complex Xliff v1.2 files. Xliff Editor effortlessly handles Segmentation, Inline tags and Alternate translations.

*Whats an XLIFF file?
An xliff file is a standardized file format based on XML, used to represent localization data. In its simplest form the original(source) string is stored as well as its translated(target) complement. Xliff files enable localization to be much more user friendly, and less error prone than manual translation. Xliff files can be identified by the extensions .xliff or .xlf. SDL Trados (.sdlxliff) also uses the xliff format, but includes some extra proprietry data.

Xcode 6 introduced the ability to export/import all your localisation data, taking away the need for sending various file formats to your localisers for translating. The XLIFF format makes translating a cinch, as it removes all the layout and formatting, and just provides a simple text-to-text translation mechanism for your translators.

-Search & Replace
-Highlighted search

-Spell checker

Crashes immediately

In version 2.0.4, as soon as you click the second line in the editor window, the app crashes. Hope a new version fixes this.

Best XLIFF tool in the app store

I'm using XLIFF for localizing an iOS app - and I tried pretty much all of the apps available in the Mac app Store... Outside of this one, all the ones I tried are pretty much garbage. (I did not try Linguan do it it's higher price). Some reviewers have noted crashing - and so far I've experience none. I'm able to open my XLIFF exported from XCode, see missing translations, make edits, and re-import back into XCode. I rated 4 stars, not 5 cause I'm sure there are advanced features realting to XLIFF that I don't even know about yet that I might someday want. But for right now, this is totally meeting my needs as an iOS developer.

Crashes frequently

Not sure what gives but this app crashes at a dropof a hat. I’m running the latest MacOS so maybe that’s the issue. Happy to update my review if they can resolve but the app as it stands now is useless to me.
