Think you..!

  • You are going to have to supply Notepad++ the font (i.e. language pack) required to render the language. Within Settings and Preferences select Localization on the General tab and choose your prefered language in the pulldown menu displaying the languages. – Ramhound Apr 25 '17 at 14:54
  • thinx. but, I want convert som text like "ãÍÌæÈ" to text like "جميل" – Jemil Apr 25 '17 at 16:45
  • Given the correct localization, if the application supports it, the text should simply open as the correct language if it is actually the correct data. If the data is not correct, then being told it is to be a different language will mean nothing to it. – music2myear Apr 25 '17 at 17:16

Seems as if you have some sort of encoding issue. Paste it into a text editor (Notepad++/Sublime) and tweak around with the localisation settings. You might need to change the document type from UTF-8 to Unicode/play around.
