Character Translation

The FTP Client can translate between the client and the server character sets. Two settings in the Character Sets dialog box control whether the FTP Client performs character translation Translate files controls character translation in ASCII file transfers and Translate server messages controls translation of displayed server messages.

The need to translate characters is dictated by differences between the character set used by the source and the character set used at the destination. In most situations, no translation is necessary.

  • If both client and server use the DOS character set, no translation is necessary.
  • If the client uses the Windows character set and the server uses the ISO-Latin-1 character set, no translation is necessary.
