How to encode file name when it is in different language?

While viewing the excel file in browser sometimes the file name is changed. We would prefer to see the filename exactly displayed in the File Download dialog box. Normally we have used the “Content-Disposition” header field to force the download, and the “filename” parameter is used to suggest a filename for the downloaded file. If the filename just contains all US-ASCII characters, then it displays the filename correctly. The problem only happens when the filename contains non-US-ASCII characters such as Swedish or Arabic. The reason is, the filename parameter is limited to US-ASCII. To overcome this problem you can use HttpUtility. UrlEncode class to encode the file name in response object. This will preserve the language. The below code snippet illustrates this.



Here is the sample for your reference.
