I retrieve data from a web server which has partly corrupted characters in the response.
I’ve tried the following things:
- Set Headers and/or ContentType arguments to UTF-8/JSON in Invoke-RestMethod
- Set [Console]::OutputEncoding = [Text.UTF8Encoding]::UTF8
- Manually convert the characters by retrieving the bytes and convert it to Latin-1, Windows-1252, UTF-8
- Changed the ps1 file encoding from UTF-8 to UTF-8 with BOM
None of them worked.
Most of the characters are displayed right but not all of them.
Here are some corrupted examples I get from the server:

Reverso Ã¢â¬â Translation, dictionary
Google mostly says something about double conversion or misinterpretion UTF-8 as something different (e.g Latin-1) but as I already said, my attempts to fix it didn’t work.
I don’t think I have any relevant code for you. I just need something to convert those corrupted strings (which I can not retrieve in the correct format because the server is broken or I don’t know) to normal characters. Is this even possible?
Thank you in advance!
