The UTF-8 encoding system is a variable-width character encoding standard for electronic communication.
UTF-8 is an encoding system for Unicode that can translate any Unicode character to a matching unique binary string and vice versa.
Unicode Transformation Format 8 (UTF-8) is a character encoding scheme. It replaces each character in an earlier Unicode scheme with a string of binary digits that represent the character's numeric code point. Then, the same binary digits can be converted back into the original character.
