Hi Owen,

I will have to check the set up.  The records are imported  from OCLC.

Are you creating these records yourself, or are you importing them? I find that non-Roman characters will display incorrectly if you choose the wrong character encoding during the "Stage MARC records for import" process. For instance, if you're importing a MARC file which is encoded as MARC 8 but you keep the default UTF-8 setting.
