Hi @longhui,

 

Can you try converting the fields to V_WString, widening the field width, and then using a Multi-Field Formula Tool to convert the text from UTF-8? For example:

  1. Add a Select Tool after your .shp file input and convert your fields to V_WString type and double the field size. 
  2. Add a Multi-Field Formula Tool using the following formula
    ConvertFromCodePage([_CurrentField_],65001)
