Proper character set for translations into french and spanish?

I’m using text-davinci-003 and experimenting with having it translate English into French and Spanish. However, some of the text that comes back contains strange characters. Are there special ways to handle the json so that the characters are right?

Can you share your prompt and give some examples of the stuff you’re seeing?

one thing you can try is adding an instruction regarding the encoding.

I’m not gonna tell you to not use text davinci because it has certain advantages, but depending on what you’re trying to accomplish you might get better results with gpt-3.5-turbo-0613 function calling.
