Online Translator Improvements

We have been very busy at Jobisez LLC to make your experience even a better one on the Jobisez website.  Lately we have been improving the infrastructure by making the EDI Online Translator even quicker.  We have increased the maximum EDI file size you can process, using the Online Translator, from 500 kilobytes to 10 megabytes.  The Translator can process any ANSI-X12 or UN-EDIFACT transaction set.  So, do not be surprised when you process a 2 MB file (for example) and it seems to take only one or two seconds.  

As you know, the translated file creates a CSV file which is emailed to you and the CSV file is also placed in your Dropbox.  (When you initially signed up for an Account, you received an email which described how to interface with the Jobisez Dropbox system.)  Simply put, you only need to install Dropbox on your Desktop (go to for instructions on how to install their desktop app). 

You may also have noticed that the EDI 816s and EDI 852s work best in the Online Translator because they, in nature, spreadsheet friendly.  The other document types also create CSV files but are more generic in nature.  If you wish to see other document types in a fancier format, please contact us

When you translate a large EDI file through the translator, it most like create a very large CSV file, when that file is emailed to you, your email provider might not be able to process the email due to its size.  So, you will need to use the Dropbox app to get the CSV file.  And it is for this reason Jobisez LLC may eliminate the emailing of the CSV files.
