Special characters in UTF-8 UNIX file

We have a program which downloads data from certain info-types in to the UNIX file, Fields are written to the specific position in the UNIX file. Some of the fields contains "Special Characters" in them.

When we download the file in UTF-8 mode (encoding default) then the file display special characters correctly but the all the characters in that record gets shifted to left.

When we download the file in ANSI mode then the file display doesn't special characters correctly but the all the characters in that record do not get shifted from their place.

How can i find the special character in the field and accordingly i will shift the field right so that in the final UNIX file field won't shift their positions.
