What are LNG files and how to open them

Are you having problems opening a LNG file or just wondering what they contain? We explain what these files are used for and show you software that we know can open or otherwise handle your files.

What is a LNG file?

LNG files have multiple uses, and Language Resource Data is one of them. Read more about the other uses further down the page.

Language Resource Data File

The LNG file extension is typically used on language resource files used by applications with localization features. These programs have language options that the user can choose from. These language options are usually presented during the installation process while configuring the application upon installation or as a configuration setting that's accessible to the user from the main window of the software.

These LNG files usually come bundled with language resources used by the application to translate the text in its interface, documentation materials, dialogue box messages, and others. Therefore, it's best to leave these .lng files alone for the language localization features of the parent application to continue working correctly.

Although some of these LNG files may be opened using a standard text editing program like Notepad, these .lng files may not display human-readable data when viewed with a text editor.

How to open LNG files

Important: Different programs may use files with the LNG file extension for different purposes, so unless you are sure which format your LNG file is, you may need to try a few different programs.

While we have not verified the apps ourselves yet, our users have suggested ten different LNG openers which you will find listed below.
