    Open it with a real text editor, like TextEdit or UltraEdit.

    lol wth there no need for that
    just right click on the file, press rename
    and at the end
    add the extension
    ".txt" (without quotations)
    and edit it in notepad thn save thn remove the extension

    This does not work. Changing the extension doesn't change anything within the file, it only allows different programs to recognize the file. You will DEFINITELY need a converter. I use a file I found a while ago called pledit.exe. You never actually open and run this file, you just drag and drop the .strings or .plist file over the pledit.exe file and it opens perfectly.

    thats weird, I open mine just fine with Notepad. No changing extensions or anything. i mean it lacks formatting but it's still readable. But i also use Visual C++ to open them and retain the formatting.

    plutil -c xml1 /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/en.lproj/SpringBoard.strings

    Then open in Notepad.
