Why do some international characters appear garbled in newer versions of Stata?

Beginning with Stata version 14, the software is considered
"Unicode-aware". Files from earlier versions of Stata may contain
characters that need to be converted from extended ASCII to Unicode. If
so, you can use the Stata unicode translate command.
