EncodingMaster is a small utility for dealing with the numerous text encodings there are in the modern computing world. If you are in a mess with text encodings, Encoding Master could help! It can convert text in ShiftJIS to UTF16LE, or MacArabic to WinArabic, or WinHebrew to UTF8, or anything to anything else! (at least where it concerns text encodings).

EncodingMaster is an excellent software tool which even boasts BATCH-PROCESSING! I am using it to convert entire folders of numerous UTF-16 text files (exported as complex HTML from FileMaker Pro 7) into UTF-8 files.
FMPro7 can export "text field contents" (as opposed to records) ONLY as UTF-16, which normally prevents users from using the client-level FMPro 7 as a broadly-compatible Web-site generator or host unless they upgrade to the FMPro Server versions ($1K+). EncodingMaster fixes this UTF-16 problem.

Note that including a HTML meta-tag specifying a "charset" DOES NOT by itself make a Web page readable correctly by a client browser. The invisible code "under" the HTML text may still contain conflicting Windows, Mac, or language-specific code that the browser (or Google's indexing and cached files!) can't display correctly. It takes an industrial-strength text-utility like EncodingMaster to correct the problem -- hopefully by batch-processing your whole Web-site.

Suggestions: The author might consider an "Advanced" setting in EncodingMaster to permit users to convert their ORIGINAL text files (instead of the admittedly safer "Save a Copy" default). In my case. all my original data resides in the FMPro database, so the exported HTML text files are easily replaced. Another option would be a user-definable target folder/path for saving converted files. Also useful would be for the program to retain the user's favorite conversion-settings as named, reloadable configuration files.
