To semantically represent a message by an utterance, where the mapping between message and utterance is secret. See Encoding/Decoding and Encryption/Decryption of Messages .
to change a message into symbols, as encode oral language into writing, encode an idea into words, encode a physical law into mathematical symbols. See also decode. to give a deep structure to a message.
To apply the rules of a code. (Contrast with decode.)
describes the process of framing the content of the communication. The context, language, and tone of the communication are set here by the party originating the message. In face-to-face examples, the full range of non-verbals are included.
To replace plain text words with code groups.
To turn the original message into the encoded message.
Translation of messages into symbols that the computer understands.
the process of taking a file and using a computer program to change its form so it can be transmitted and stored on the Internet. To be usable again, it must be decoded.
The process of translating sound into symbols. Encoding is the opposite of decoding. Spelling requires encoding whereas reading requires decoding. ( Hall & Moats, 1999)
To encode is to "write the code" for a spoken word, to spell. It is the opposite of decode.
A device, such as a sorter, encodes a document by printing information on the document. The information helps speed the processing of the document and gives evidence of transaction and processing information.
To convert data using a code in such a manner that reconversion to the original form is possible. Contrast with decode
In data security, to encrypt. In programming, to change into code, commonly involving changing something to a different form â€“ for example, to change a decimal number to a binary-coded form.
To process a non-text message (a file or picture) into text for the purposes of being mailed. Your email client will automatically decode attachments.
The process of assigning additional information, such as ZIP+4, Carrier Route, Line-of-Travel, or Return Code to a record.
The transcription of information from one form to another for purposes of obscuring, more efficient transfer, or comprehension by another entity. Opposite of Decode
The term used to describe the translation of information, such as text or photographs, into binary code.
To use a code to represent individual characters in a message. Here are a number of Encoding Terms.
vb. 1. In data security, to encrypt. See also encryption. 2. In programming, to put something into code, which frequently involves changing the form--for example, changing a decimal number to binary-coded form. See also binary-coded decimal, EBCDIC.
In semiotics, the process of creating a message for transmission by the addresser to the addressee is called encoding. The act of interpreting the message by the addressee is called decoding.
