What are .DS_Store and _MACOSX files?

.DS_Store and MACOSX files are files created by computers running Mac OS X which determine how a file appears on their computer.

If you are a Mac user, you won’t see these files, but unfortunately Windows users may receive them when someone sends you a compressed archive (like a zip or rar).

As a translator, you never need to touch these files. Simply ignore them.
