Only tested with FR so far, but the Create and View Loan Account pages have display issues. The pages are showing up with the extended characters garbled. For example, "RÃ©sumÃ© de compte" instead of "Résumé de compte".
I've reproduced this on two different Windows environments.
Windows, testing with FR
I don't think that's the problem. .po files are transformed into Java .properties files with iso-8859-1 encoding before they are used by Mifos.
I recall that we expect some Java .properties resource bundles to be in UTF-8 format (see application/src/main/resources/org/mifos/config/resources/messageSourceBean.xml). This might be a problem if any of the transformed .po files are forced to be interpreted as UTF-8.
assigning to hot fix.
enda uses Linux, we can defer to G until we find a customer that's deploying off of Mifos using non-English
I am seeing this still on windows. Basically its looks like the properties files themselves are not getting encoded correctly on windows (most likely when checking out using git) Its not a UTF-8 issue in rendering of the page.
Sorry, I'm not sure what to do about this, and I don't have a Windows Mifos build environment with which to debug. Reassigning to "Unassigned".
