Binary to Text

Computers store all characters as binary data (numbers). The digits 0 and 1 (binary numerals) are used to represent computer instructions or text in binary code. A bit string is assigned to each instruction or symbol. Text and other data are converted to binary by computers using an ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) value. If you are a computer software programmer or a computer hardware design expert, you may need to make sense of the binary data from the computer to design and tweak your algorithm. Humans understand the English Text that is, in fact, ASCII code representation for the computers. But when computers perform a task, the result is in the form of 0s and 1s, and to understand them we need to convert them back to English text i.e., ASCII representation.

Our Binary to Text Converter tool can help you convert the Binary Codes into the English text that you can directly understand to help improve your logic or pseudo code for your software programs or may even be helpful in the algorithm development stage. Sometimes the software programs write the output data into a file and that data is in binary form, but you can’t understand it and you have to get it converted to get the job done. There comes our useful tool to help ease out your tension. You won’t have to use the ASCII table and manually convert each of the bytes of 0s and 1s into ASCII characters.  Binary to Text Converter will do it for you, free and easily.

How to use Binary to Text Tool?

Our tool is very easy to use. The interface just contains three buttons and a box where you ‘ll enter the binary code and converted text will appear in the new box. Please follow the steps below to get your binary chunks converted to English Text. 

  1. Copy the Binary code from the file where you have the 0s and 1s to be converted into ASCII/English strings.
  2. You don’t have to make sure that each character code is separated by a blank space. There can be more than 8 consecutive Binary numbers. The tool is intelligent enough to break them into groups of 8.
  3. Just make sure that if you are not using full 8 bits for a character in consecutive manner, then you must zero pad it on left side.

e.g. 1001000 1101001 is same as 100100001101001.

Both will get converted to Hi

  1. After copying the binary code, open our Binary to Text Converter online tool and paste your copied code in the box above the three buttons.
  2. Click on the Convert This is the first button from left to right.
  3. A new box will appear below the buttons and your converted English Text will be there in a few moments.
  4. You can then save it to your clipboard by clicking the Copy Icon in the top right corner of the lower box.

Among rest of the two buttons, one is Sample button which, upon clicking, will automatically enter a sample Binary code:

1001000 1101001 101100 100000 1010011 1100001 1101101 1110000 1101100 1100101 100000 1010100 1100101 1111000 1110100 100001.

You won’t be able understand this because that’s made for a computer to understand. After that if Convert button is pressed, the converted English text: ‘Hi, Sample Text!’ will be generated in lower box.

So, the Sample button is for the ones who don’t even have the time to read the step-by-step instructions, they just try on their own, sample binary code gets automatically entered and they can convert to see the results. They simply get an idea, and this also adds to the simplicity of this tool.

Last among the buttons is the Reset button, which upon a single click, will clear both the boxes and you are ready to convert the next block of binaries. You ‘ll not have to manually select whole text in both the boxes and then delete it. It has been made easy by doing just one click on the Reset button.

Why should you use our Binary to Text tool?

Our Case Converter text tool has been created to make your life easier. In a matter of milliseconds, our simple tool will convert unlimited lengths of Binary codes to English text which humans can understand and interpret. You won’t have to do it chunk by chunk because some converters have limited the amount in single conversion but that’s not the case here, you can convert any length of codes at once. It ensures 100 % accuracy so that you don’t have to double check manually what English text has been generated. You can just stay at peace knowing that our Binary to Text tool has flawlessly converted the binary code and the text is ready to be interpreted.
