You need to get a bettertext editor, such as Notepad++ and resave that file with encoding UTF-8(w/o BOM)
I'm sorry, Brf. was that for nikk or for me? (I don't think we've ever edited the language files, but I can't be 100% sure since I just took over administration of this board...)

Under the Format menu in Notepad++, you will find several encoding options. One is "UTF-8", one is "UTF-8 without BOM". You need to select the latter, then save the file.
