The Multext character translation program
MtRecode is a program for translation between various character sets, developed in the framework of the MULTEXT project. It has some of the functionality of the GNU recode tool, but it is based on different principles and is oriented towards SGML text manipulation. ISO 10646 is used internally as a pivot in the character translation process. When exact translation into a character is not possible, MtRecode can use SGML entities as a fallback. Conversely, MtRecode understands SGML entities in the input and can recode them into characters of the target character sets, if they exist. MtRecode is completely customizable: the user can add new character sets and/or entities by providing tables that map characters and entities to ISO 10646.
This software has been developed in the context of the MULTEXT project. It is based on the MULTEXT MtStr multilingual string library. Examples in this document have been designed with the MULTEXT multilingual text editor MtScript .
