Utf8 to utf16 converter tool What is a utf8 to utf16 converter?
With this tool you can easily convert UTF8 data to UTF16 data. UTF8 and UTF16 are two different encodings. UTF8 uses a variable length encoding scheme that encodes each Unicode code point using one to four bytes but UTF16 is fixed at two or four bytes. With this tool you can choose the output base for UTF16, change endianness to big endian or little endian, and add spaces between all UTF8 values for increased readability. Quick and powerful!
Utf8 to utf16 converter examples Click to use
UTF16-BE in Hex
In this example we convert text in UTF8 to big endian UTF16 and make the output display hex values of the resulting UTF16-BE. We also enable BOM at the beginning of UTF16 and add spaces between UTF16 values.
