    Have you tried the Reload as option on the Document menu? There are some options there that seem relevant (EditPlus might not be reading the file as UTF-8).

      Have you tried the "Reload as" option on the Document menu?
      There are some options there that seem relevant (EditPlus
      might not be reading the file as UTF-8). There's also some
      language options if you hit the button with three dots, but
      I don't think they'll help.

      Sadly I have no experience with multi-lingual files, so you
      may find my suggestion as un-helpful as the previous
      poster's.
