Can we do character conversion from UTF-8 (CCSID 1208) to EBCDIC (CCSID 037) (and vice versa) using Synsort or DFSORT tool?
did searched for an answer in "DEV_SyncSort_1.3_Programmers_Guide" and googled it but did not find any suitable answers on the same.

Background of my problem:
We are planning for converting our existing applications databases into unicode format so as to support double byte texts
(kanji, katana , korean) hence we have been working on POC & have been testing for things related to basic processes dealing with COBOL programs, COBOL DB2 program,Stored procedures, Unload , Load jobs.

There are certain jobs in our application which interfaces (sending data) with other downstream systems which would not be made in to unicode.

Curently those jobs have been working using SORT cards now once we change our CORE system and its respecteive jobs to handle unicode data, data would pass till end before passing it to down stream at this juncture i believe those relevant contents will have to be converted EBCDIC format before passing it downtream.

If SORT does not supports this conversions then may have to go for a COBOL program which would do this conversion before passing it on.

hence checking whether this alternative exists?

Hello and welcome to the forum,

Syncsort DMExpress has support for Unicode. As far as i know DME runs on LUW, not the IBM mainframe.

The current release of Syncsort for the mainframe is MFX (1.4.x)

1.3 is rather out of date.
