The Base64 online converter supports both functions of the algorithm on same page. If you need to encode a text to Base64, fill in the “Text” field and press “Encode text to Base64” — the result will appear in the “Base64” field. Otherwise, if you have a Base64 string, paste it into the “Base64” field and press “Decode Base64 to text” — the result will appear in the “Text” field.
About Base64 online converter
Please note that this Base64 converter supports only “main standard” and decodes the data in strict mode. Perhaps this option does not suit your needs, and you want to encode text or decode Base64 using other variations of this algorithm. If so, please check the following online convertors. They are also simple and free, but they are sharpened for certain tasks.
- Base64 Decode
- Base64 Encode
I hope that I managed to develop all the necessary converters that meet your needs. Nevertheless, if you’re missing some Base64 encoding or decoding features, please let me know.
What is a Base64 Translator?
It may seem funny, but some people call the “Base64 converter” a “Base64 translator”. Well, by and large, it really “translates” the text into another form. However, from a technical point of view, this process is called “conversation”, therefore, never call it a “Base64 translator”. And since we are talking about terms, remember that the conversation of text to Base64 is called “encoding” and the reverse process is called “decoding”. In no case it should not be confused with “encryption” and “decryption” which are used to protect data, while Base64 doesn’t offer any protection.
