FAQ: Encounter problems with FTP transfers that garble non-English characters in filenames such as Chinese and Arabic characters. What is Charset Encoding? What is UTF-8?, is it the default charset? Why this affects my download and upload? Why the filenames or files cannot display correctly on FileZilla Client? Chinese Character and other characters cannot display or download or even rename the files there was an error.
Important things to know about:
UTF-8. UTF-8 (UCS Transformation Format—8-bit) is a variable-width encoding that can represent every character in the Unicode character set. It was designed for backward compatibility with ASCII and to avoid the complications of endianness and byte order marks in UTF-16 and UTF-32. – Wikipedia, UTF-8 know more about it!
These sorts of questions can be answer, here’s the absolute solution:
1. Open your FileZilla Client, then click File then click Site Manager. (or used the shortcut key CTRL+S)
2. Then from there, choose the remote ftp site, then click Charset Tab.
3. From there, you will see the server charset encoding options for filenames.
*Autodetect *Force UTF-8 and *Use custom charset
Try to used Force UTF-8, choose it and click OK.
4. Close your previous connection and close FileZilla Client. Then launch again FileZilla Client then see if this resolves the issue.
That’s it. I hope this guidelines helps you out. Cheers! 😀
