URL encoding (also known as "percent encoding" is a method of converting text so it only uses the basic (ASCII) character set. So, for example, สวัสดี would be converted to %E0%B8%AA%E0%B8%A7%E0%B8%B1%E0%B8%AA%E0%B8%94%E0%B8%B5. Decoding is the reverse process, taking the encoded text back to its original form. This web application allows you to URL encode and decode text.

How to Use

Paste the text you wish to encode/decode into the text area.

Select whether you wish to encode or decode using the radio buttons

Click on the "Process" button to perform the conversion.

Click on the "Reset" button to clear the text area.


I wrote this because the form I use for feedback only supports the ASCII character set. I therefore have to encode any feedback before it's emailed to me. I then use this app to recover the feedback in its original form by decoding.
