# How do I convert binary files to ASCII

## Binary text translator

Enter binary numbers with any prefix / postfix / separator and click the button Convert
(e.g. 01000101 01111000 01100001 01101101 01110000 01101100 01100101):

Text to binary converter ►

With ASCII text coding, a fixed 1 byte is used for each character.

UTF-8 text encoding uses a variable number of bytes for each character. This requires a separator between each binary number.

### How to convert binary files to text

Convert binary ASCII code to text:

1. Get binary byte
2. Convert binary byte to decimal
3. Retrieves the character of the ASCII code from the ASCII table
4. Proceed to the next byte

#### example

Convert the binary ASCII code "01010000 01101100 01100001 01101110 01110100 00100000 01110100 01110010 01100101 01100101 01110011" into text:

Solution:

Use the ASCII table to get characters from the ASCII code.

01010000 2 = 2 6 + 2 4 = 64 + 16 = 80 = "P"

01101100 2 = 2 6 +2 5 +2 3 +2 2 = 64 + 32 + 8 + 4 = 108 = "l"

01100001 2 = 2 6 +2 5 +2 0 = 64 + 32 + 1 = 97 = "a"

For all binary bytes you should get the text:

"Planting trees"

### How do I convert binary to text?

1. Get Binary Byte Code
2. Convert binary byte to decimal
3. Gets the character of the decimal ASCII code from the ASCII table
4. Move on to the next binary byte

### How do I use the binary text converter?

1. Paste binary bytecodes into the input text box.
2. Select the character encoding type.
3. Click the Convert button.

### How do I convert binary code to English?

1. Get Binary Byte Code
2. Convert binary byte to decimal
3. Get the English letter of the decimal ASCII code from the ASCII table
4. Move on to the next binary byte

### How do I convert 01000001 binary to text?

Use the ASCII table:
01000001 = 2 ^ 6 + 2 ^ 0 = 64 + 1 = 65 = 'A' sign

### How do I convert 00110000 binary to text?

Use the ASCII table:
00110000 = 2 ^ 5 + 2 ^ 4 = 2 ^ 5 + 2 ^ 4 = 32 + 16 = 48 = '0' characters
