I would need to do more research in this, but I am pretty sure BIG5 is used in Tiwan and Hong Kong therefore it is used for Traditional Chinese. GB2312 is a coding for Simplified Chinese used in mainland China. Since most of the characters are different you cannot do this conversion at all. I'm a native English speaker, but my wife is Chinese, so I've had to deal with these encodings quite often.
