What is a STRINGS file?

Files that contain the .strings file extension are files that normally contain text strings which are commonly used by the Apple Safari and Mac OS X operating systems.

The STRINGS files that are used by the Apple Safari and Mac OS X platforms are used to create alerts, status and error messages for the user of the Mac computer. The STRINGS files that are used by these Mac operating systems may also contain language translation of an application or other localization data.

The STRINGS files on a user's computer are most commonly stored in the system's Resources folder as a part of the OS X application package.
