I have sent a translation done using Tag Editor (SDL Trados 2007) and now they say that it should be in UTF8, not ANSI.
I don't know how to do the conversion...
Can anyone help me please?
The translation was from French to Italian.
The source file was .xht

Thank you in advance

Hi Sofia,

Open your file in Notepad. Find < ?xml version='1.0' encoding='ISO-8859-1'? > or similar at the very top and enter UTF-8 instead of the ISO-xxxx or whatever is there, but keep the quotes. Save your file in Notepad using Save as and select UTF-8 as the encoding. That should do the trick
