How to Convert Binary Code to Text?

A binary code is the language of computers and digital systems. It uses a two-symbol system (0 and 1) to represent text, instruction, or other data. 

However, humans can’t understand binary code by just looking at the binary code. So, if you have a message in binary code or there is a task that requires you to read it, you’ll first need to convert it into normal text. 

So, how do you convert binary code to text? Well, there are two methods you can use for this purpose. First, convert the binary number to decimal or hexadecimal. Then, find the corresponding ASCII values of characters. 

Alternatively, you can use an online binary-to-text converter tool. Since this is the most efficient one, we have introduced this method in detail. Read on!

Tips to Choose a Binary Code Converter?

With the current-era advancements, there are a lot of binary code converter tools that can accurately do their job. Choosing one isn’t easy. However, look for the following attributes, you will find the best one:

  • Accuracy. The first and foremost important aspect of a binary converter is its ability to produce accurate outputs. Always test multiple tools and see how they perform. 

  • Ease of use. Choose a tool that it's easy to use and has a simple interface. These are the ones which don't require special skills to use them. 

  • Cost. Another consideration is whether the tool is free or paid. We suggest you always choose a free tool; many free tools work precisely fine. 

  • No input restriction. You should be able to submit an unlimited amount of binary code text in a single go. Restricted lengths require you to split text in pieces and submit each piece which takes a lot of time. 

Considering all these factors, we searched online and found Prepostseo’s Binary Code Translator having all these attributes. Below, we have shown how you can use this tool to convert binary code to text. Read on!

How to Use a Binary Code Converter?

Once you choose the binary code translator, using it is quite simple. Follow these steps:

1. Set Up The Tool

First of all, decide how you want to make the conversion happen. By default, it is Binary to Text. However, you can set and select the type of input and output text as shown in the figure below. 

2. Submit The Binary Code Into The Tool

Once you are done with the conversion settings, the next step is to submit the binary code into the text input box. Simply copy and paste or upload a file that contains binary code. Wait for a while until the output is generated.

NOTE: There is no button to start the conversion process. Instead, this tool works on a real-time conversion model, which means it immediately produces output once you submit the binary code in the text input box.  

That said, here is what binary code input we provided to the tool:

01000001 00100000 01100010 01101001 01101110 01100001 01110010 01111001 00100000 01100011 01101111 01100100 01100101 00100000 01110010 01100101 01110000 01110010 01100101 01110011 01100101 01101110 01110100 01110011 00100000 01110100 01100101 01111000 01110100 00100000 01110101 01110011 01101001 01101110 01100111 00100000 01100001 00100000 01110100 01110111 01101111 00101101 01110011 01111001 01101101 01100010 01101111 01101100 00100000 01110011 01111001 01110011 01110100 01100101 01101101 00101110

Here is the output Prepostseo’s Binary Code Translator produced: 

A binary code represents text using a two-symbol system.

Here is the live output the tools produced: 

3. Copy Or Download The Output

Once the output is generated, you can click on the Copy-text icon to copy the text into your clipboard. Alternatively, you can click on the Download icon to download the text in TXT file format. That’s it! 

Conclusion

To change binary code into text, which is what humans can read, you have two ways. First, convert the binary numbers into decimal or hexadecimal. Then, you find what letters or symbols they stand for using a chart called ASCII. 

Or you can simply use an online tool that does all the work for you. These tools take the binary code you give them and quickly change it into text. 

They're handy because you don't need to do any math or remember any codes. Just paste in the binary code, and the tool spits out the text. See the detailed step-by-step guide we discussed earlier to see how this happens.
