i18n: umlauts and other special characters


I have i18n property files for several languages which use special characters (German, French, Asian languages, etc.)

These files are saved as UTF8 encoded files. Everything works fine as long as I serve these files from my local Tomcat for testing.

But as soon as I deploy the application to the netweaver server and call it from there, all special characters are crippled.

This document states "Use Unicode escape sequences for special characters." but to be honest, I can't believe that this should be the solution.


You can also check grunt-native2ascii , it would be make sense to include all i18n files and convert them automatically to ASCII during ui5 build.
