UTF-8 converter 22.214.171.124
Small-sized and portable application that converts plain text documents to UTF-8 Unicode format immediately and with minimum effort
Since installation is not a prerequisite, you can just drop the executable file anywhere on the disk and click it to run. Otherwise, you can move UTF-8 converter to a USB flash disk or similar storage unit, in order to run it on any computer with minimum effort.
An important aspect to take into account is that the Windows registry does not get new entries, and leftovers are not kept on the hard drive after eliminating the utility.
The interface is represented by a regular window with a plain and uncomplicated layout, where you can import plain text documents using the file browser only, since the "drag and drop" method is not supported.
Batch processing is allowed, meaning that you can insert multiple files and convert all of them at the same time. So, all you have to do is click a button to initialize the conversion procedure. UTF-8 converter does not create new files, but overwrites the original ones. This is why it is important to create backups before starting the encoding operation. There are no other options available for this tool.
The utility is very low-demanding when it comes to CPU and RAM, so it doesn't put a strain on system performance. No error dialogs have been shown in our tests, and the app did not hang or crash. Although it has not been updated for a long time, UTF-8 converter provides a straightforward solution to converting TXT files to UTF-8 Unicode.
