EDI Translate and Stedi Guides work together

Stedi Guides are used to define EDI requirements for programmatic access and validation. EDI Translate works together with Stedi Guides for precise reading and writing of EDI.

Key features

  • EDI in JSON format

    EDI documents have a weird structure and are full of strange characters. JSON, however, is something we’re all used to. EDI Translate lets you work with data in JSON format as you read and write EDI.

  • Validation

    EDI Translate works in conjunction with Stedi Guides to help you conform to specifications, whether they are your own or those dictated by a trading partner. This ensures a high level of accuracy when generating or parsing EDI.

  • Read and write EDI

    EDI Translate works both directions, X12 to JSON or JSON to X12, allowing you to read and write EDI while conforming to requirements defined in the Stedi Guide specified by you.

  • Leverage X12 EDI standards

    EDI Translate can read or write any transaction set defined by X12. Simply define your Stedi Guide to be used for translation including any custom requirements.

  • Integrates with your tech stack

    It doesn’t matter what technology you use: as long as you can send HTTP requests, you can translate to and from EDI automatically using EDI Translate.

  • 100% pay-per-use

    No upfront fees, no monthly commitments, no user licenses; you only pay for what you use. A generous free tier allows for experimentation.
