I've stumbled over a problem with Windows Locale ID information and
codepages. I'm writing a Python application that parses a CSV file,
the format of a line in this file is "LCID;Text1;Text2". Each line can
contain a different locale id (LCID) and the text fields contain data
that is encoded in some codepage which is associated with this LCID. My
current data file contains the codes 1033 for German and 1031 for
English US (as listed in
Unfortunately, I cannot find out which Codepage (like cp-1252 or
whatever) belongs to which LCID.
My question is: How can I convert this data into something more
reasonable like unicode? Basically, what I want is something like
"Text1;Text2", both fields encoded as UTF-8. Can this be done with
Python? How can I find out which codepage I have to use for 1033 and 1031?
Any help appreciated,
