    Titles I can add are too short. I wanted to add a simple .txt file from desktop Notepad with non-English characters to the Office suite on the phone, if did not display correctly with standard UTF-8 encoding. What encoding to use? I have a Lumia 530 with all the software it can offer, that is, 8.1 latest.

    What do you mean exactly by not displaying incorrectly? How did it display?

    Also OneNote works fine with non-english characters, so you could consider it.

    Hm.

    One of us suggested did not display correctly here:

    While another of us interpreted it as not displaying incorrectly:

    I see the case of something lost in translation here.

    Also OneNote works fine with non-english characters, so you could consider it.
    Regarding OneNote, check this out, thank you: http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...ml#post3571315

    I added an extra "not".

    About One Note, you can import txt files from PC if you have OneNote installed by opening the txt in your PC and using print -> Send to OneNote.

    Internally, modern MS software uses UTF-16 encoding (commonly referred to as Unicode) though the more compatible UTF-8 should work. If you have issues, try UTF-16.
