What is STRINGS file?

A .STRINGS file is a text file that contains strings used for displaying alerts, error messages, and status messages on the Mac OS X program. Many STRINGS files containing various alert, notification, and error messages are stored in the system directory, and the correct files can be accessed by the OS to display the specific notification and error messages. Further, the STRINGS file can be accessed and opened by any text editor application supported by the Mac OS X program. Some of the text editor application includes Apple Xcode program, MacroMates TextMate software, and Apple TextEdit.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the STRINGS file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the STRINGS file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the STRINGS file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the STRINGS file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the STRINGS file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
