Recently, data analysis and processing is one of the most interesting and demanding fields in both academics and industries. There are large numbers of tools openly available in web. But, different tools take inputs and return outputs in different data representation formats. To build the appropriate converter for a pair of data representation formats, we need both sufficient time and in depth knowledge of the formats. Here, we discuss CoNLL, SSF, XML and JSON data representation formats and develop a tool for conversion between them. Other conversions will be included in the extended version.
