i used a line

geaendert = meta.DateTimeField(verbose_name="Änderungsdatum", ....

and got questionmarks on the page showing that name. on the same page other umlauts (coming from djangos localization) where shown correctly. i moved to

geaendert = meta.DateTimeField(verbose_name=u"Änderungsdatum", ....

which immediatly gives the error

UnicodeDecodeError 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xe4 in position 65: ordinal not in range(128)

. so i switched back to the first version for now. i changed a field with a name including an umlaut and now i get another error:

OperationalError at /admin/ Could not decode to UTF-8 column <unknown column name> with text �nderungsdatum und Beschreibung geändert

Have you specified your encoding in your file? See for details.

comment:2 Changed 10 years ago by mdt@…

yes, shure, the python modules contain

# -*- encoding: latin1 -*-

on top. does not help.

i solved it with a in the pythonpath setting sys.setdefaultencoding('utf-8') - perhaps this should be mentioned in the docs somewhere?
