To:android-developers@googlegroups.com From:Dirk Vranckaert Subject:[android-developers] Writing files in UTF-8 Date:Thu, 29 Mar 2012 00:25:48 -0700 (PDT)
 

In my application users can export their data (or a subset of it) to a CSV file (to be used in Excel or any other spreadsheet app).
However some of my users are reporting that if they export some that contains non-western characters (like chinese or hebrew writings) the text is not correctly in the export.

When I try this myself I indeed see that the text is not correct. Here is the code that writes the content to the file (UTF-8 encoded).

Writer out = null;
try {
    out = new BufferedWriter(new OutputStreamWriter(
new FileOutputStream(file), "UTF-8"
    ));
    out.write(result.toString());
} catch (UnsupportedEncodingException e) {
    Log.e(LOG_TAG, "The encoding is not supported!", e);
} catch (FileNotFoundException e) {
    Log.e(LOG_TAG, "The file is not found", e);
} catch (IOException e) {
    Log.e(LOG_TAG, "Exception occurred during export...", e);
} finally {
    if (out != null) {
try {
    out.close();
} catch (IOException e) {
    Log.e(LOG_TAG, "Could not close the writer", e);
}
    }
}

Is there anything else that I can do to optimize my code to support those languages?

Kr,

Dirk Vranckaert
