I am importing data from Gitlab to Splunk.
The data imported are in French and contains special characters like é, à, è, ê.
Data imported in Splunk are not well encoded.
For example when importing "Définition" I got "D�finition" in Splunk
I tried to configure Splunk (props.conf) with others charsets (UTF-8, latin-1) but nothing works.
Can anyone help me please?

Read this first:
Now, have you tried this in props.conf:
Make sure that the line uses ALL-CAPS.
You need to figure out the encoding of the source. The following tool helped me many times in the past - Encoding tool
So, you can capture one character from the source data and paste it in the tool's text box. Then you need to see whether it matches one of the encoding the tool supports.
