vData - category import - category needs a title
Given CSV file is semi colon separated while it should be comma separated, Please keep it as it is as you exported. Though it works on semi colon as well, but you should set the semi colon as the delimiter in vData configuration as well. And JSON error is because params and metadata fields are not formatted properly, both fields are missing comma between JSON attributes. How did you get these two fields in this format?
i use MS Excel 2016. I have removed the "" manuelly via the standard MS text editor. Now the import works, but when I edit the imported categories I get the error message "Error decoding JSON data: Syntax error". You can check this at the test site (category IDs 14 + 15).

Which application are you using to Edit CSV file? You have incorrectly edited the file. You've enclosed all the columns within a single inverted commas ( "" ). Please correct that. You can use MS Excel or MAC's Number application to edit the CSV file.
i have only add a new entry in the file, all other are unchanged. For testing i have installed a brand new joomla site. I'll send you the login data via your contact form.
Here the test files from the new joomla site:

It seems either the category title in the file you are importing is missing or you are not selecting the correct field for the Category Title on Import ( field mapping ) layout during the import process. Please check and let us know...
i get allways the error "category needs a title - import failed" in german "Die Kategorie muss einen Titel haben! - Import Failed" when i'll import joomla categories with the standard profil.
Thanks for your help
