File type specification:

Source code and script file type icon Source code and script file type

The LOC file extension is related to Localization string resource files. String resource files are text files which contain strings in different languages. By using string resource files it is possible to create applications which can be translated to new languages without changing the source or recompiling the application. Each string is identified by a unique number and a language number. Strings are referred to by their identification number and an application has a current language, by combining those two numbers a string for a specific language is selected.

Help how to open LOC files:

This file type is not meant to be opened directly, there is no software that could open and work with it directly, or there is no information available in public sources about opening this file type. This is usually the case of some internal data files, caches, temporary files etc.

How to convert file with extension LOC:

As far as we know, this .loc file type can't be converted to any other file format. This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
