Kamban Unicode Convertor:

This is a simple but powerful Universal convetor program for converting ASCII based Font encodings to Unicode. This program will convert all your Text and RTF files with old Font encoding to Unicode format. With a simple and easy to use interface, you can select files that you want to convert. Font encodings currently supported are:

  • For Tamil: TAM / TAB, TSCII, Adhawin.
  • For Kannada: Shree851 and Nudi.

The program is flexible to accept all Indian Languages and font encodings. When RTF file is selected for conversion, the program will automatically identify the font encodings and convert them for all languages. To help this "automate process", the program has the facility for a user to provide font names and their encodings. This is a simple Text file that can be edited. Optionally the Unicode Font to replace the original font can also be provided. During the conversion process, the program will refer to this file to identify the fonts and their encodings for conversion. One of the biggest advantage of this program is that there is no need to have the original Font installed on your system.

This program will not only save the user of re-typing the old Font Encoding files, but also will preserve the original Format when RTF files are supplied. All your documents based on the old encoded files can now be converted to Unicode and be ready for next generation of storage and presentation.

This is our first attempt to provide a Universal Convertor. We need your feedback and help. If you have any font that need conversion, do let us know.
