    I tried queries with non-english characters and these are not passed to Google correct, so the results are not relevant with the original query

    Yes!! You are right. I notice the same issue. Instead of the foreign character I see ascii code.

    I wish SB was utf-8

    I saw "v1.14.50 Fix: Encoding with some non-english characters when harvesting"
    but still non english characters are not encoded properly

    One alternative is to :
    1. Go to Google and search what you want with the non-english characters
    2. Google encodes your characters with readable characters at the browser line
    3. You copy&paste these to scrapebox and works

    however this is something you have to do for each word/phrase and will be much better to have a native utf-8 support

    Someone in the past made a uft-8 scraper. No its not gonna work with SB. Look around the forum and see if you can find the guy, Idk his name but he was popular with scrapebox list etc.

    If you can get SB to change from yahoo.com to yahoo.fr, yahoo.cn google.cn etc etc then I know how to scrape foreign characters with SB.
