Translate EDI files in the browser
Web EDI Translator is an online EDI files editor, translator, and validator.
With Web EDI Translator you can do the following, directly in your browser:
- Upload EDI files and translate them to JSON. EDI files are automatically expanded, one segment per line
- Validate the JSON representation of an EDI file according to the rules of the standard (X12, EDIFACT, etc.)
- Highlight and overlay any validation/translation issues at the exact EDI segment
- Edit the EDI file or the JSON, to create your own EDI file
- Translate the JSON back to an EDI file
- Generate 997, 999, TA1, or CONTRL acknowledgment
Web EDI Translator can translate up to 3 EDI files a day without an account. This is for demonstration only. In order to use it frequently, you need to create a free account.
EDI API provides a richer set of configuration options than Web EDI Translator.
To open the settings menu click on the wrench button in the top-right corner.
The following settings can be configured in Web EDI Translator:
This is the identifier of the model to be used when translating EDI transactions to JSON. By default, the API will identify the model from the contents of the file and will try to load a corresponding model automatically. This value overrides this logic and used the specified model instead.
You can use the refresh button to pull a list of custom models, however, this will be counted towards your API calls.
All data elements with alpha (A) or alphanumeric (AN) data types are validated against a syntax set of allowed characters. The default syntax set varies between standards and is either inferred from the file contents (EDIFACT would look into the UNB segment) or is statically set (X12 to use the Extended syntax set by default).
This value overrides any existing sets and needs to list out every symbol/character, URL-encoded, which is allowed, without any spaces/delimiters between the characters.
Ignore null values
Whether to ignore null values in the JSON response or not. True by default.
