Sibelius Music - Score

Files that contain the .sib file extension are most commonly associated with the Sibelius music notation software application. These files contain musical scores that have been created by the Sibelius software.

The Sibelius software application was developed for professionals and students who wish to learn how to write music using a computer. The Sibelius software application can write, print, and play musical scores.

SIB files can be composed using software instruments or MIDI devices. While the SIB files can be used to play musical software instruments, the SIB files themselves do not actually contain any audio data.

TSILang Binary Translation File

TSILang is a software localization product used to localize (translate) software products into multiple languages. It extracts text strings from the software source code, and the developer embeds some TSILang-code to replace the standard texts with translated versions based on user choice or detected system language. Translated text strings are stored in a plain-text SIL file, or in this case, a binary file format (SIB), which is faster to read by the application using the text strings.
