Deserializing UTF-8 encoded text

Jun 3, 2014 at 12:54 PM
Hi everyone,

I have problems with decoding JSON texts that include umlaut. I receive them in the following UTF8 form:

"Erweiterung Gest\u00c3\u00a4nge f\u00c3\u00bcr"

This isn't the correct form for C#, instead of "\u00c3\u00a4" I would expect a "\u00e4" for getting an 'ä' character.

Anyhow, it seems that this is a valid JSON representation of UTF-8 encoded texts. How can I decode this with JSON.NET? I played around with the SerializerSettings but without luck so far.

Thanks in advance
