Hi Max,

You reached me! You have an interesting setup -  Data Transfer doesn't
export CSV, so I'm guessing that what you're doing is producing a CSV file
via a Semantic MediaWiki query, then importing that. Is that right?

In DT's Special:ImportCSV interface, you can choose whether to use UTF-8 or
UTF-16 encoding. Have you tried both?

> In the first wiki and the .CSV-file I use UTF-8 characters with accents.
> So far so good.

> After implementing Data Transfer 0.6.2 this is no longer the case.
> For instance UTF-8 character %C3 %A9
