Unicode MP3 tagging is a way of dealing with the fact that MP3 files are created by people who speak a host of different languages that utilise a wide variety of characters. These different languages often do not appear correctly on the computers of users who speak and read other languages. Fortunately, software exists that easily converts MP3 file tags into the more universal Unicode standard, which ensures that characters are never corrupted or jumbled regardless of the computer used to view them.
