Character encoding is a system that is used to represent individual characters in an encoding system. This is also often referred to as a character map. There are several types of character encoding for the same lettering system and also for other types of letters. Typical examples of encoding systems are ASCII, IBM. UTF-8, UTF-16, among many others. This program is designed to help Windows users change the character encoding mode of a plain text document from one format to another without hassles.
The program allows the user to convert individual files and also supports the batch encoding mode. This means that the user can load multiple files and change their encoding format concurrently. In this case, all files will use the same configurations because the processing and conversion are done automatically. The program creates an interface for the user to load the source document and specify the directory to save the converted files. There is also an option to add a prefix to the name of the converted file, and optionally overwrite the original file.
The program is a portable executable file. The user can simply save the program file on a USB drive and launch it on any device. It is fast and responsive.
