Does exactly what it says on the tin. Converts character sets. to and from Unicode/Win CP and Mac character sets.
Useful for language translations from Word (unicode standard) to FileMaker Pro (Win CP standards), replacing Windows' own text handling tools which substitute unknown characters with ?s
