This is the Hanzi Converter, which converts between GB and BIG-5 codes.

The program converts a GB file to a BIG-5 file, or a BIG-5 file to a GB file. GB GuoBiao refers to the standard implementation of “GB2312-80” of Mainland China, in which the two bytes representing a GB code have their most significant bit set to 1. BIG-5 refers to the Big Five standard published in 1984 by Taiwan’s Institute for Information Industry.
