Those strings ought to be amenable to machine recoding as they're
most likely UCS-2 or UTF-16. (Obviously bear in mind that you have
to take into account the byte-ordering.)

Otherwise, from what you have printed, you could write an editing
script to detect the string "^@ and then delete every other character
until you reach ^@" (or are about to delete a space) and treat that
extra ^@ following the space. Post-processing with a script would
save a lot of handiwork.
