I'm trying to convert a french pdf into simple text, but accented characters
don't seem to be translated.

For example, occurrences of é are translated to e'.

The command I use is:

save -f ps2ascii.ps my.pdf -c quit >file.txt

Am I doing something wrong?
Is there a way to convert text to utf-8 rather than to ascii?

Thanks for answering.
