What are ION Translator files?

ION Translator files are device drivers used to read modbus data from both 3rd party modbus devices and Schneider branded devices as the PM and CM series meters.
There are two directories where translator files are stored by default:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Schneider Electric\ION Enterprise\system\translators
C:\Program Files (x86)\Schneider Electric\ION Enterprise\config\translators

The system translators folder is where built in device types are stored and the config directory is for translators made through the Modbus Device Importer. A translator is composed of two files one with a .ion extension and a second in a .xml format. The .xml file converts the devices' modbus registers to equivalent ION handles, which are then sorted according to the Manager < Module < Register hierarchy by the .ion file.
