EmEditor offers true, native Unicode support (UTF-7, UTF-8, UTF-16), the preferred encoding method for multiple language capability. Not only can you open Unicode files, but you can also edit files in Unicode so that you can display multiple languages at the same time.
EmEditor supports Unicode little endian, Unicode big endian, UTF-8, UTF-7, Baltic, Central European, Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional, Cyrillic, Greek, Japanese (Shift-JIS), Japanese (JIS), Japanese (EUC), Korean, Thai, Turkish, Vietnamese, Western European, and all other encodings available in Windows, allowing you to work in almost any language on earth. You can open a file with any encoding supported in the Windows system, and easily convert from one encoding to another within EmEditor.
EmEditor supports Unicode natively since the whole program is built as as Unicode application. Due to its native Unicode build, you can open Unicode file names and search for Unicode characters. The Unicode support is a must for anyone who uses international languages. The ability to open and edit files as Unicode makes it the preferred encoding method for multiple language support because it can display multiple languages at the same time. EmEditor even supports Unicode characters outside of the Basic Multilingual Plane (BMP); therefore it can display CJK Extension B characters (as long as a supporting font is available on the system) and Extended Katakana. As long as a supporting font is available, EmEditor can display the CJK Extension B characters. The Unicode character code can be displayed in more than four hexadecimal digits.
To open a file with a specific encoding, click the Open toolbar button or press CTRL+O, and choose the encoding you want to open a file with, from the Encoding drop-down list. After you open a file, you can reload the file with a different encoding by double-clicking the encoding name on the Status bar, and selecting a new encoding menu item.
