How to change CSV encoding

All text files, including CSV files, have an ‘encoding’ which describes how to interpret the raw data of the file as text. Sometimes you will need to convert the encoding of a CSV file. For example, one software package may output CSV files with ASCII encoding, but another may expect an input CSV files to have UTF-16 encoding.

It is very easy to the change the encoding of CSV files in Easy Data Transform:

csv delimiter

csv file type

change csv delimiter character

change CSV delimiter

There are 60 encodings to choose from.

If you have large number of files to convert you can do it using the batch processing feature.

As well as changing file encodings, Easy Data Transform also allows you to combine 46 transforms to quickly and easily create complex data transformations. See our quick start guide for a short overview.
