    Dear Sirs,
    Please help me with the following problem:

    We are using Community Edition with MySQL and the language is Turkish.
    I added in Web.config
     <globalization   culture="tr-TR"   uiCulture="tr-TR"   >
    also <localization defaultProvider="Sitefinity" persistenceMode="PathPrefix" defaultCulture="tr" cultures="tr" />
    Still the turkish symbols get replaced in the content with english ones, the problem is with Ğ->G, and ı ->i.

    The database enoding is utf_unicode_ci, and I can insert the correct symbols manually in database.

    Many thanks!

    Hello Peppi Alexandrova,

    Sitefinity CE does not support localization. You can however set globalization and use Turkish language for your site. You can also map external templates and translate the resource files for the public controls to Turkish. I have tried reproducing the issue with character encoding however to no avail. The character set I am using for the MySQL db is ut8.

    Best wishes,

    Hi Radoslav,
    you answer didn't bring me any insight..

    Finally it turned out that I had to add Charset=latin5; in the connection string.

    Thanks, anyway.
