Working on 2021, for those who are wondering how to import this user-defined language here are the instructions.
Import the file: Language → Define your language... → Import
Restart the application.
Language → LogFile
Now logfile should be highlighted.

Another install option is to copy & paste into a new file with name log.udl.xml inside : path\to\Notepad++\userDefineLangs
