I am looking for a sentence or two to define the word "parse" to a non-technical user.
The file they upload may contain three types of lines and I need to recognize the type and parse accordingly.
What would be a good definition / explanation of "parse"?
They know what Load File means (button).
Then they Parse (button) and examine the output.
If the output looks correct they know they can Upload (button).
Some of the input is trashed such that the rules don't pick it up and needs visual inspection. They may even still Upload if it is not perfect.
I am just trying to describe what this Parse button does at an abstract semi-technical level. If this belongs on another site then let me know. Not looking for help on how to lay out the page.
Thanks for all the freedback and so appreciate the UX side. I have some non-technical users and on the other end it has to stand up to technical rigor. I get you are probably going to hate this be so far I have gone with
Parse is a computer term for breaking down a structured or semi structured file
Much like you might break down a sentence
