Counterparts Lite is a full editor for string tables. It lets you add, reorder, and erase entries in the string table. It also permits comments anywhere and has plenty of keyboard shortcuts so you can keep your hands on the keyboard. Counterparts Lite can open binary (compiled) string tables too.
For translators there’s a side-by-side view where you choose a reference file. The edited file will then follow the same structure as the reference. Translating becomes a job of filling the holes. If there is only a few holes they’re easy to find using the filter control at the top.
I wish it supported XLIFF files. This is the first app I’ve seen with an 8-hour trial period.
