Unicode Format Conversion: With the Text Encoder, it is possible to convert a variety of text files from one Unicode format to another one or to or from ANSI. Supported formats are ASCII, ANSI, UTF-7, UTF-8, UTF-16 Big Endian, UTF-16 Little Endian, UTF-32 Big Endian, UTF-32 Little Endian, Latin-1 (ISO 8859-1), Latin-2 (ISO 8859-2), Win-1250 (Central European), Win-1251 (Cyrillic), Win-1252 (Western European) and Win-1253 (Greek). Each of these formats can be converted into any other format.
Change of the Line Break Type: Also the type of the used line break of text files can be changed with the TextEncoder. The TextEncoder supports the line break types CR LF (Windows, DOS, OS/2, CP/M, TOS), LF (Unix, Linux, MacOS, Mac OS X, AmigaOS), CR (Classic Mac OS, Apple II, Commodore) and NL (AIX OS, IBM Mainframe Systems, OS/390) as well as the various Unicode characters for line breaks FF, NEL, LS, PS and VT.
Batch Processing: It can be worked on any number of text files at the same time. The files can be easily added to the program, by dragging them from any folder of your computer into the file list. After adding the files and choosing an encoding and/or line break type, you have just to click on "Convert" to apply all changes to all of the files.
Byte Order Mark (BOM): The program can be used to delete the Byte Order Mark (BOM) from files (or to add Byte Order Marks to files). Also when converting files from one format into another format, you can write the files with or without the Byte Order Mark as you want.
Full Unicode Support: All functions listed on these pages can also be performed with Unicode characters. It does not matter whether you want to work with Unicode file names, or whether your files are containing Chinese, Cyrillic, Greek, Hebrew or other special characters.
Script Control: In the version Batch Text Encoder you can execute all functions of the Text Encoder by using a batch script. So, you can completely automate the converting process. If you start the batch version without parameters, it can be used in the same way like the normal Text Encoder with graphical user interface.
No installation (Portable Software): This software works without installation. This spares your Registry and you can immediately use the program.
