This page is to help new developers get started. It lists various Unicode compliant text editors that we have found useful for different operating systems. Inclusion here does not mean that we unequivocally endorse all aspects of the program.
- SC Unipad – the free edition is session time limited
- BabelPad – can convert to NFC
- EditPad Lite – good for code page conversions
MS WordPad can convert a Rich Text File (RTF) to Unicode (UTF-16), though this conversion will discard all formatting information. After saving as Unicode, use another editor to convert UTF-16 to UTF-8.
- XML Copy Editor – Windows & Ubuntu
Runs on any operating system with a Java SE installed.
