std::wstring_convert

From cppreference.com
< cpp‎ | locale
Defined in header <locale>
template< class Codecvt,

          class Elem = wchar_t,
          class Wide_alloc = std::allocator<Elem>,
          class Byte_alloc = std::allocator<char> >

class wstring_convert;
(since C++11)
(deprecated in C++17)

Class template std::wstring_convert performs conversions between byte string std::string and wide string std::basic_string<Elem>, using an individual code conversion facet Codecvt. std::wstring_convert assumes ownership of the conversion facet, and cannot use a facet managed by a locale. The standard facets suitable for use with std::wstring_convert are std::codecvt_utf8 for UTF-8/UCS2 and UTF-8/UCS4 conversions and std::codecvt_utf8_utf16 for UTF-8/UTF-16 conversions.
