Add A Word in Between A Phrase And A List of Values

Could you please help me with the following search-and-replace problem I am having?
I want to enter a word at the end of each alias for the name of a sound file. This time I want to enter the word “強.” An alias is a phrase that is used to represent the name of special parameter values that is set for a sound file name. The aliases are represented as a word or phrase after an “=” sign. The numbers represent the values for each parameter.
Here is the data I currently have (“before” data):
_uuioaoi.wav=i_hh,4219,340,0,154,80 _uuioaoi.wav=ihh,4147,360,0,240,80 a2.wav=あ↑,78,251,298,0,0
Here is how I would like that data to look (“after” data):
_uuioaoi.wav=i_hh強,4219,340,0,154,80 _uuioaoi.wav=ihh強,4147,360,0,240,80 a2.wav=あ↑強,78,251,298,0,0
I’m not experienced with using an app like this. This was the app a friend recommended to me to work on files that function like this. If I can be led in the right direction on what to do, that would help a lot. Thank you.

Thank you for showing before and after data in the code blocks.
You have to use a feature called “regular expressions”.
In your instance, it looks like you want to put your character right before the first comma in each line.
- FIND WHAT =
- REPLACE WITH =
- SEARCH MODE = Regular Expression
The FIND of the regular expression will look for the beginning of the line (
^), followed by 0-or-more (
*) of the characters that aren’t CR, LF, or comma (
[^\r\n,]), followed by a comma. Everying inside the
(...)parentheses will go into group#1 for storage
The REPLACE starts with the contents of group#1 (
$1), which will be the first field of your line, followed by the literal text
強, followed by a literal comma.
This is just one of the multitudes of things you can do with Regular Expressions. Look up each of the tokens I shared in the online User Manua’s Searching/Regex section linked below, to learn more about what they do, and to see other similar things that can be done.
