S3 UTF-8 content type encoding of files

UTF-8 encoding and what may go wrong?
Why you may get strange characters instead of your desired üäöß and similar characters? The Locoia app depends on the Content-type header provided by a server, API-endpoint or drive (GoogleDrive, Dropbox or AWS S3) and treats the file as such. Meaning, either your server, API-endpoint or drive already has the appropriate header set, which will be mostly UTF-8 due to wide usage, or you need to explicitly set it.
The popular software AWS S3 does not set it manually during the upload of files in step three, as per the below image:
Within step three, the user needs to set it as per the below screenshot to:
1
content-type: application/csv;charset=UTF-8
Copied!
Generic
Thus, the Locoia app treats the file as UTF-8.
