YAML is a Unicode based data serialization language. YAML stands for YAML Ain't Markup Language. YAML files use the set of printable Unicode characters (UTF-8, UTF-16 or UTF-32).

YAML is used for various purposes in programming. Examples: configuration files, Internet messaging, object persistence, data auditing. The YAML syntax was designed to correspond to data types (lists, associative arrays and scalars).

memoQ can import and export YAML files in versions 1.0, 1.1. and 1.2. YAML 1.2 is compliant with JSON.
