Thank you for getting to us about this problem. In the current version, there is indeed a problem with the way accent marks, umlauts, etc. are visualized. The good news is that the priority of this issue is quite high and we have managed to solve most of the problems we have found,
Our test documents with French accented letters and German umlauts created using MS Word are shown correctly in the development version of the control. The fixes will be released in the upcoming 2012 Q1 in late February. If you like, you can open a support ticket and attach your document, so that we can try importing it and adjust the import if necessary.
All the best,
the Telerik team
