Browsers use encoding for correct text displaying. Below you can see the encodings used for displaying symbols of Russian, English and German languages.

LanguageEncoding
Russian (ru)windows-1251, koi8-r, iso-8859-5
English (en)windows-1252, iso-8859-1, latin1
German (de)windows-1252, iso-8859-1, latin1

The full list of encodings is available in the product documentation.

Some languages cannot be rendered using only one single-byte charset, e.g. Greek and French. That is why it is necessary to define encoding that will be used for displaying symbols of this or that language.

Encoding for public and administrative sections are adjusted separately:

  • Encoding used in the public section is assigned for each site in the "Site edit" form:

    Settings -> System settings -> Sites -> List of sites.

    Encoding is assigned with respect to language that will be used for site content representation.

    Settings -> Interface languages.
