im sending the following request to maps api but receiving the json response with chars problem. Can some one point me in the right direction to set charset correctly ?
Request -- http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/geocode/json?latlng=38.676817,-9.178433&sensor=false Response of formated_address = R. dos Lusíadas, 2805 Almada, Portugal Where it should be R dos Lusíadas, 2805 Almada, Portugal.

In the query string there is no information about language (i.e., no language parameter). Besides when loading the Google Maps API Javascript code on client side, you give no information about the language settings. Please, have a look at Google Maps API localization.
