tsv to csv converter

world's simplest csv tool

Free online TSV to CSV converter. Just upload your TSV file in the form below and it will automatically get converted to a CSV file. In the tool options, you can adjust the format of the input TSV – specify the comment character and skip empty lines, and the format of the output CSV – specify the delimiter, quote symbols, and activate full field quoting. Created by programmers from team Browserling.

What is a tsv to csv converter?

This tool transforms Tab Separated Values (TSV) data to Comma Separated Values (CSV) data. TSV and CSV are two very similar data formats for sharing spreadsheet data but they differ in how they delimit data columns. TSV uses tabs to separate values, while CSV uses commas. Tabs are less likely to appear in actual data values, making TSV a preferable format for data containing commas, such as large numbers. For example, if the number "1,234,567" appears in a CSV file, then it takes effort to determine if it's three columns "1", "234", and "567" or a single number "1,234,567". Using a tab to separate values reduces the potential for parsing errors and makes TSV slightly more robust. Our tool allows you to quickly change the delimiter and transform TSVs into CSVs. By default, the resulting CSV uses commas to separate fields, however, if you prefer a different delimiter instead of commas, you can specify the desired CSV field separator in the options. Additionally, you can set the character that's used to enclose CSV fields in quotes and activate an option to quote all fields. If the input TSV contains empty lines, you can choose to remove them via the "Ignore Empty TSV Lines" option. If TSV includes comment lines starting with a specific symbol (such as "#" or "//"), you can specify that symbol in the options and exclude the lines starting with this symbol from being converted. Typically, the first line of TSV and CSV data serves as headers, setting the name of data in each column. If your input TSV includes headers, you can choose whether to preserve them in the output CSV using the "Keep Headers" checkbox. If you need to convert CSV back to TSV, you can use our Convert CSV to TSV tool. Csv-abulous!

Convert Space Exploration Data from TSV to CSV

In this example, we convert data about space exploration missions from TSV to CSV format. The input data includes information about mission names, launch dates, destinations, and durations. The input TSV does not contain empty lines or comment lines, so we're able to directly convert it to a CSV file. We also preserve the first row of the TSV that contains the names of columns (it's also called the header row).

mission_name launch_date destination duration Apollo 11 1969-07-16 Moon 8 days Curiosity 2011-11-26 Mars Over 4102 sols Artemis 1 2022-11-16 Moon 25.5 days

Movie Data in TSV Format

This example converts tab-separated movie data into comma-separated data. The TSV data consists of four columns: movie_title, genre, director, and year. Since each column is self-explanatory, we exclude the column names from the CSV output and extract only the data starting from the second row. Additionally, we specify the double quote character in the quote-symbol option and enable quoting of all output CSV values.

movie_title genre director year Forrest Gump Drama Robert Zemeckis 1994 The Departed Crime Martin Scorsese 2006 Pulp Fiction Crime Quentin Tarantino 1994 Interstellar Sci-Fi Christopher Nolan 2014 Spirited Away Fantasy Hayao Miyazaki 2001

Convert Social Media Demographics from TSV to CSV

In this example, we load a TSV file containing information about various social media platforms, their user age range, gender, and percentage of all users. The input TSV is slightly messy, containing empty and comment lines. We clean it up by removing the empty lines and comment lines and convert it into a neat CSV with headers and a non-standard pipe symbol "|" as a field delimiter.

platform age gender percentage_of_users Facebook 25-34 Female 30% Instagram 18-24 Male 25% Twitter 35-44 Female 20% #TikTok 13-17 Male 15%
