Is this a question about the format of Java property bundles?

In which case,

should have all information you need.

In doubt, just create a sample Properties object, write it to disk, and inspect the result.

Hi, I tried with UTF8 and UTF-16 but without translation success

UTF-8 only convert some characters and UTF-16 convert all. The output content was include in bundle file.

Hi, Ian!

Try to use [native2ascii - Native-to-ASCII Converter|]

The syntax look like this:

native2ascii.exe -encoding <[Encoding|]> <source file> <target file>

The file "native2ascii.exe" you can find in JDK of your Java installation or download it.

Regards, Mikhail.
