I've been doing a lot of foreign work recently.
I had a bit of trouble configuring link assistant to display certain characters.

First of all I did not have the correct language packs installed in windows. Get this done first and foremost!

Secondly: I imported my data via CSV. This import data contained subject headers in French, German, Spanish, Arabic and Chinese.

When originally importing the .csv I always used the default setting.
It created horrible characters...

For instance it would miss out the umlaut's (German) or acute and grave accents (French) and well, Chinese was a disaster. Nuff said!

It occured to me that I had to take more care with the import settings.

For instance. If you're importing French words via CSV into link assistant, you may wish to choose the setting ISSO-8859-1 Latin Alphabet No.1.

It may be obvious to most, but I've been using this software for quite a while and I missed it.

Anyway, hopefully this will be useful to some...
