Hi,
I have an ascii encoded file with line
"My name is Jamie"
How can I write my perl script to replace the sentence in Chinese (I have the Chinese translation) and save the file as UTF-8 encoded?
Thanks
Jamie

where and how your chinese translation stored?

You want the perl script, which gives the meaning of sentence by extracting the meaning of each word from your database?

I want to store the chinese characters in the perl script in a variable.  Then when i see certain English words, i want to replace them with Chinese characters and write out a file as UTF-8 encoded.

I tried this below but it seems like it is not writing a UTF-8 encoded file.

use utf8;
my $msgb = ''some chinese character";

open OUT, ">:utf8",     "output.txt"
print OUT "$msgb\n";

Thanks
Jamie
