Strange characters


(SafeTex) #1

Hello

You see the same question on every forum but I still can't find the answer in my case

LanguageTool has started to some text with 'strange characters' . The characters in question are in fact French acccented words that I have left in an English text as they are French names

But my .txt document that I'm checking is encoded in UTF-8 and I don't think I had this problem in the past.

How can I deal with this as all the accented words cause false alarms.

Thanks

SafeTex

Can you give an actual example? I cannot reproduce a problem with
French words in an English text.

Hello Daniel

Sorry that it has taken me so long to get back to this

Here are a few lines from LanguageTool where the French accents left in an English text (as they are names), are displayed with strange characters

Underneath each entry, I have pasted the same text as it appears in the text that was loaded into LanguageTools (a text file encoded in UTF 8 that displays perfectly in Notepad ++)

Actually LT does not necessarily expect UTF-8: it expects the system's
default encoding. On Windows, for example, that's cp-1252.
