How do I convert jira.updated.date

In JIRA and also in Greenhopper I am from time to time facing the a proprietary date-format with values like

-1334129321733 and so on

This happens in:

- JIRA for the field jira.updated.date within XML-Workflow exports

- Greenhopper for fields sprint.start.date and sprint.end.date

Question: How do I convert this into human readable time-formats? Any known algorithms? Neither Google, nor any other question/answer here could help me out so far.

If I'm not mistaken, those timestamps are in 'seconds since the epoch' Unix time. This website has a converter: http://www.epochconverter.com/

This is not possible with JQl date functions. Can you use an online Julian converter to convert the date to UTC?
