Save Non English Characters In JSON

I am trying to create a JSON file which contains non English characters but I ran into a major problem. Normally I create my JSON file using Notepad and I would select Save as Type All Files but now it is not working when I enter non English characters into the file.

All the non English characters are stored as question marks. Which application should I use to create my JSON so this doesn’t happen?

Hi there oangodd,

If using “Windows Notepad” you need to set the
“Encoding” option to UTF-8.

The problem with “Windows Notepad” is that it
actually encodes it as UTF-8-BOM. :eek:

More modern text editors will give you better
alternatives. :winky:
