    Try it, you’ll find the plugin is quite happy with all kinds of character sets. The database uses “UTF-8” encoding.

    I have tried it but it doesn’t work fine with these spanish characters.

    joseagarmon,

    The plugin is not the problem here. You need to make sure your web pages have UTF-8 encoding.

    Where can I check UTF-8 encoding in my website?

    Easiest way is to open a page in Firefox, then look under View/Character Encoding the encoding of the page will be indicated with a check mark. Other browsers have the same kind of thing.

    If the pages are not encoded as UTF-8, this is set in the web page header, so you’ll be looking for a setting in your theme or you’ll need to edit the header template to get the correct character set.

    I checked it. It’s fine, text/html; charset=UTF-8. Could it be a problem with Spanish keyboard?

    joseagarmon,

    I’m very sorry. I didn’t notice you were asking about downloading a CSV. In this case, it’s all on the spreadsheet or editor you’re opening the CSV with. For instance, in Excel, when you are opening the file, you must specify that the format of the CSV is UTF-8.

    Ok. I’ll try it. Thanks.
