Unicode Length Counter

World's Simplest Unicode Tool

This browser-based utility counts individual characters (graphemes) and the total number of bytes in Unicode text. Anything that you paste or enter in the text area on the left automatically gets split into symbols or bytes and gets counted on the right. It supports the most popular Unicode encodings (such as UTF-8, UTF-16, and UTF-32) and it works with emoji characters. You can also select input Unicode text encoding and adjust whitespace counting. Created by encoding gurus from team Browserling.

What Is a Unicode Length Counter?

This utility finds the length of Unicode data. It can calculate the number of graphemes in Unicode text or the number of bytes these graphemes take when encoded in various Unicode encodings. A grapheme is a single symbol of a written language. Some examples of graphemes are regular letters (e.g. "e" or "ǣ"), symbols (e.g. "☯" or "☎"), numbers (e.g. "5" or "Π"), emojis (e.g. "🌙" or "💎") and many others. Each grapheme has a length of one but when encoded in computer memory, it can consist of many bytes. The number of bytes required depends on the selected Unicode encoding. For example, the star character "⭐" uses 3 bytes in UTF8 encoding, 2 bytes in UTF16 encoding, and 4 bytes in UTF32 encoding. When calculating the length of Unicode text, you can switch between grapheme mode and byte mode in the options. We also have three extra options for managing whitespace counting. Namely, you can exclude counting newlines, tabs, and spaces. If the input text has several lines (separated by newlines), then you can find the length of each line separately. This is done by activating the "Count Lines Separately" option. When this option is active, the program will count the number of graphemes or bytes individually for each line and display the length next to each line.

Unicode Maze

In this example, we draw a maze using Unicode box drawing symbols. The objective of this puzzle is for the mouse to get to the cheese. The mouse, cheese, and all box characters are graphemes and we count how many of them are in this puzzle. We also include newlines, tabs, and spaces in the result. We find that this maze is made out of 258 graphemes.

Sandwich Recipe

In this example, we load a six-step recipe for a delicious sandwich as the input, with each step written on a separate line. To count the number of characters on each line (each step), we select the "Count Graphemes" mode and also activate the "Count Lines Separately" option. At the output, we get a vertical list of six numbers that correspond to the length of each line of text.

Pixar Animation Studios

In this example, we create the logo for the American animation studio "Pixar" using different Unicode characters. It is easy to see that the name consists of only five graphemes, so we decided to calculate the number of bytes here. It turns out that these five symbols take 26 bytes in the UTF8 encoding, 24 bytes in UTF16 encoding, and 28 in UTF32 encoding.

Unicode Chess

This example counts the number of bytes of a chess set in the UTF16 encoding. It ignores newline characters, and as a result, the output value is 500 bytes. For UTF32 encoding there are twice as many bytes, namely 1000 because one character in UTF16 usually takes 2 bytes but in UTF32 always takes 4 bytes. For UTF8 encoding it is much less – 298 bytes because it's a variable-width encoding with one to four bytes per symbol.
