Hi I have a website that is in Traditional Chinese and when I check the site statistics it tell me that the search term for the website is å%8f°å%8d%97 親å­%90é¤%90廳 which obviously makes no sense to me. My question is what is this encoding called? And is there a way to use Python to decode this character string. Thank you.
