BibTeX / Zotero / UTF8: convert .bib files to LaTeX compatible format
When using import from Zotero, the export looks to be UTF8, which is known to cause many problems with BibTeX. If there was a way of converting them to LaTeX escaped codes, like e.g. KBibTeX is doing, that would be really helpful.
Thanks for reporting this. The conversion to BibTeX is handled by Zotero’s API, so we’ll get in touch with them and see if we can work out a way of getting the .bib with escape codes (possibly as an option). In the interim, the UTF-8 .bib files should work well if you are using the more modern biblatex / biber toolchain, which has much better unicode support.
Thanks, Chris! We will get in touch with them. Nice to see this progressing :)

Zotero is currently fixing the API, I think you overleaf guys should just join the twitter conversation and it will be fix in no time!
