0) what is the survey?

1) contact whoever gave you the file and ask for a Stata version, if
the data was not collected using SAS software, it is likely an
alternative version exists;

2) post here the dictionary, a couple of lines of the data file along
with the variables you are interested in; someone will help translate;

Best, Sergiy
