I'm working on a large project, I've already imported my tag definitions with the wizard, but when I try to open the target language file it says something like "unknown character" for accent marks and "eñes" - which settings do I have to change to get my characters???

Please try to modify the entity settings in your ini file Jul 12, 2007

However, your customer should provide you with the valid ini or dtd file.
Creating your own using the wizzard is some sort of last ressort when you have nothing else, but gives you no guarantee everything will work as you expect it to work.
If your customer has privided you with the ini file, ask him - he should know or be able to fix it.
Fixing it is not obvious and not easy, if you do not know how xml works. This is in fact not the job of a translator.

I tried adding the unicode characters myself... but it didn't work either... the problem seem to be the words with accent marks or with letter "ñ", Is it possible that there is an easy way to make my target file work?
