0008029: Openbravo2Po generates char=UTF-8 in .po file, while character encoding is ISO-8859-1

DescriptionOpenbravo2Po generates char=UTF-8 in .po file, while character encoding is ISO-8859-1 (because of german umlaute)

POEdit results in a "Failed to convert file contents to Unicode"

After manually changing the charset to ISO-8859-1, PoEdit opens the file
Steps To ReproduceExport german translation from Openbravo and convert xml with openbravo2po. Try to open with poedit a file which contents german umlaute
Proposed SolutionCorrect the Openbravo export function, which exports the german translation with
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
TagsNo tags attached.

Hello mgerke,

using of german umlaut does not automatically for you to use iso-8859-1 encoding. But if openbravo2po exports a header with utf-8 marker end exports the german umlaut in iso-8859-1 encoding then this combination will not be working.

The same issue happened to me after trying to open the po files, converted from xml by openbravo2po, for the french translation in POEDIT. => Failed to convert to unicode.
