Reading files in UTF-8

Hello everybody,

I am deseperatly trying to read file encoded in UTF-8, to populate
the Globalize database. But it seems that the UTF-8 encoding is not
recognized, and read as an ASCII char. Is there any specific
manipulation to do to achieve this?
Thanks in advance for any help…

UTF-8 is ASCII compatible, so if your data don’t contain any
multi-byte sequences, they should seem like as ASCII data.
