UTF8 Generator

While developing web applications you of course want to be fully compliant, and your shiny app should not croak on a few funky characters. You want to test this, but it always is a pain to come up with a few lines that contain the real exotic stuff. Until now 🙂

Use the form on this page to convert your text to UTF-8 characters that visually match the original ASCII ones. Characters are randomized, so keep pressing the button to get another version.

Have fun 😉


  1. This is excellent!

    If one might make a suggestion, it would be very handy to also display the byte-length of the resulting UTF-8-ized string. This would be useful when string lengths must be arbitrarily limited, as in a WiFi SSID which must be no more than 32 bytes.

    Thanks for making this!
