DATA FORMAT STANDARDS

Encode text using almost any data format, including Unicode, ASCII, Western, Japanese, Chinese, or any other character encoding, plus custom formats. Predefined barcode components also support the following standards:

  • GTIN-8 (for EAN-8, JAN-8, and UPC-E components)
  • GTIN-12 (for UPC-A components)
  • GTIN-13 (for EAN-13 and JAN-13 components)
  • GTIN-14 (formerly EAN-14 and SCC-14; for GS1 components that use the (01) application identifier, for GS1 DataBar components, and for ITF-14 components)
  • SCC-18 (for GS1 barcode components that use the (00) application identifier)
SYMBOLOGIES VS. STANDARDS

Many barcode symbologies are used in more than one barcode or label standard. The standards above (which are included with BarTender) are listed by some other software companies as separate symbologies. This is misleading, because these are standards and not symbologies.
