We use Content Builder with a custom HTML template (stated and saved as UTF-8) and several content blocks (all in UTF-8) which use AMPscript (lookup) to retrieve information out of Data Extension, which are populated by automated import jobs (which use UTF-8 CSV files).

Customers informed us that at some (not all) devices, umlaute in some parts of our emails look weird - surprisingly, not only the DE-based info (2), but also hard coded content blocks (1):

Additionally, when I look on an email to edit, it shows me the following setup: enter image description here

What can be the root cause for that? Which "corresponding drop down" are they talking about? I can't find any way to format the language of either the template, the content block, the Data Extensions or the email itself.

The feature called "Target Language" with the drop-down to different encoding in the screenshot above is a feature that used to be part of a paid package. However, it seems to now be included with all editions (as part of our new pricing and packaging). You can get this enabled by calling into support.

You can change the enconding going to "Go to" dropdown by the top right of the screen, then go to Properties

There is a combo to change the enconding:

  • Weird - I can't see this field anywhere. Any idea how to switch that on?

  • Try to open a case in 'Salesforce Help and Training' or speak with your Account Executive.
