You can use our tool from above to both encode or decode a string of text. For global interoperability, URIs have to be encoded uniformly. To map the broad range of characters used globally into the 60 or so allowed characters in a URI, a two-step process is used:
Convert the character string into a sequence of bytes by the UTF-8 encoding
Convert each byte that is no longer an ASCII letter or digit to %HH, where HH is the hexadecimal value of the byte.
Example, the string: Marçois Louiz,would be encoded as: Mar%C3%A7ois%Lo%3u99iz
