Mozilla Localization uses .properties files. Syntax and requirements for these properties are mostly identical with standard Java properties files.

Perform a sanity check prior to translation including removing duplicate keys (especially for larger files) and using correct line breaks (any line break in text strings should be preceded with a \n, otherwise it will be ignored by the parser).

Code Sample

boolean_key = --- true\n
empty_string_translation = 
# This is the amazing description for this key!
key_with_description = Check it out\! This key has a description\! (At least in some formats)
key_with_line-break = This translations contains\na line-break.
nested.deeply.key = I'm a deeply nested key.
nested.key = This key is nested inside a namespace.
null_translation = = Only one kitten found.
pluralized_key.other = Wow, you have %s kittens\! = You have no kitten.
sample_collection = ---\n- first item\n- second item\n- third item\n
simple_key = Simple key, simple message, so simple.
unverified_key = This translation is not yet verified and waits for it. (In some formats we also export this status)
