About the Transcode Service Business Service
The Transcode Service business service converts data from one character-set encoding to another. It can also validate conversions before they are performed.
The conversion implementation is portable, and does not rely on the operating system or any third-party products for codepage definitions. Supported error detection includes output-buffer overflow, memory-allocation failure, invalid data in the input encoding stream, and substitution in the output encoding stream.
NOTE: Windows fallback ("approximate") conversions are not supported.
The Transcode Service business service provides data conversion and validation of conversion between the following encodings:
- 874 (Thai)
- 932 (Japanese)
- 936 (Simplified Chinese)
- 949 (Korean)
- 950 (Traditional Chinese)
- 1252 (Western European)
