  • Currently supported files are .xlsx and .json, and they should exist somewhere in the workspace directory.
  • Any keys that are found in the file that don't exist in the original culture file will not be added, and a warning will be displayed.
  • For json files, there should be a single object with string keys and values to be parsed, similar to the way the culture files are defined.

  • For Excel files, there should be two columns, the first being the key to replace, and the second being the updated copy.
| Key                  | Value                                                     |

  • Note that the header columns are for display/formatting purposes only - the extension does not treat the first row any different than the rest of the file. It will try to replace the value for the given key, if it exists.
  • The culture files are determined by the path(s) or glob pattern(s) specified in the extension's settings.
