When attempting to edit files from modifications for the purpose of personalization or translating to your community native language, make sure you use a proper editor that is designed to use the proper encoding & EOL's.

Many people attempt to use Microsoft's notepad which will cause errors and/or likely cause your modification or forum to crash.

To edit files from SMF or any of its modification's I will suggest that you use Notepad++ (Notepad-plus-plus).
It is a free third party PC application that has no ads & no gimmicks.
Imo you should make it your default application to edit txt, php, js, & css files.
