 Hello!I want to import a text in French, but unfortunately apostrohes disappear! Consider LeTexte = Import["UEMO2021.txt", {"Text", "Lines"}] While in the original document we have for instance the sentence "j’ai apprécié l’approche de l’origine des prénoms", I obtain in LeTexte : "jai apprécié lapproche de lorigine des prénoms".... What should I do? Thanks a lot in advance,Claude

 I think you'll succeed with Mike's suggestion above. But also be aware that different sources can use different characters for apostrophe. So one encoding might not work for all documents.

 Thank you very much! LeTexte = Import["UEMO2021.txt", {"Text", "Lines"}, CharacterEncoding -> "WindowsANSI"]; works perfectly!Regards, Claude
