I uploaded a .CSV file which contained both Chinese and English characters.
The English characters showed normally in Airtable.
However, the Chinese characters turned into corrupted characters.
Pls explain this if u know about this problem.
Thanks in advance! :grinning_face_with_big_eyes: :grinning_face_with_big_eyes:

Hey there! I see here there’s a post from the archives that might help you - This looks to be specific to imports from CSV with Chinese characters:

Thanks for your reply.
If I import an .CSV file which is downloaded from Airtable, the Chinese characters display normally.
So maybe the problem is the .CSV file.
Whatever, I can copy the Chinese characters from excel and paste into Airtable.
Thanks again. :relaxed:
