Problem with special characters when importing a database

Problem: When importing the database, it replaces some letters with special characters.


This problem is due to the coding of the document, we always recommend it to be UTF-8 without BOM.

In case you already have your file you can fix it this way:
1) Open the .csv file in Notepad++
2) Click on "Encoding" and then select "Convert to UTF-8 without BOM".

3) Ready.
