HanzConvert is a utility to convert Chinese text files between UTF-8, GB18030 and BIG-5 encodings. It can detect encoding of input files automatically, and it's also support simplified or traditional output characters with output encodings of UTF-8 and GB18030. The simplified and traditional characters converting algorithm is based on words rather than characters, so it's more accurate.

Usage ------------------

1. Add file by click "Add Files" or "Add Folder" button, drag files to main window or dock icon.
2. Set encodings, character set and output folder;
3. Click "Convert" button to start。

Problems ----------------

Q: Can't detect encoding of input files.
A: Set input encoding manually, or decrease confidence in Preferences window (not recommended).

Q: The output files are messed up.
A: Check whether you've selected the correct input encoding.

Q: Some characters in output files are missing.
A: You'd better not use BIG-5 as output encoding because it contains less characters than UTF-8 and GB18030.

Q: Convert failed.
A: Check whether you've selected the correct input encoding and you have permission to write to output folder.

Q: I want to convert text file with other extensions.
A: Set file extensions in Preferences window.

Q: How to add files recursively?
A: Check this option in Preferences window.
