Chinese characters in pdf files (4 posts)

    Longtime user, just updated to 5.7.5, I'm at a loss uploading .pdf files such as:
    课程设计.pdf
    to the server while maintaining the simple Chinese characters using Fetch.
    Downloaded a trial version of Vicomsoft FTP Client and the files transfers splendidly.
    Why is the transfer not working for me using Fetch?

    Hi,

    I would recommend changing the "Preferred encoding" setting in the Miscellaneous section of Fetch Preferences. The first one I'd try is Unicode (UTF-8). Does that work?

    Thanks,

    Hi Jim,

    Thanks for the quick response, and your recommendation!

    I had been trying the various Chinese encodings listed in Miscellaneous preferences in vain.

    Yes, Unicode (UTF-8) works for these files with Chinese characters.

    I'm glad that worked. Different servers use different encodings, but Unicode is becoming more popular.

    Thanks,
