UnicodeEncodeError - Dealing with Japanese Characters
Hi All,

Ive got a small Python app that sends a bunch of codes to a checking API and returns the results.

Im getting errors when the the app tries to right non-english characters to a "results.csv" resulting in the following logging error:

File "C:\Users\PyUser\.conda\envs\testenv\lib\encodings\", line 19, in encode
return codecs.charmap_encode(input,self.errors,encoding_table)[0]
UnicodeEncodeError: 'charmap' codec can't encode characters in position 49-59: character maps to <undefined>

The code that writes the results is"create output")
    with open(pathlib.Path(f'{RESULTS_PATH}/api_results.csv'), 'w', newline='') as f:
        fieldnames = list(response_data["TestResults"].values())[0].keys()
        wrtr = csv.DictWriter(f, fieldnames=fieldnames)
When running the codes through postman the resulting JSON is :

"82": {
"IDENTITY": "ニコン(日本)",
"ORIGIN": "Japan"
"83": {

Any advice greatly appreciated

Thanks so much!

Windows choose wrong encoding,force it use utf-8.
with open(pathlib.Path(f'{RESULTS_PATH}/api_results.csv'), 'w', newline='', encoding='utf-8') as f:
