It shouldn't have anything to do with the encoding.

Is there a root file with included files? If so, do each of the included files have the

% !TEX root = path/to/root.tex

near the top of the file? Where path/to/root.tex is the absolute or relative path from the included file to the root file. E.g., if the root.tex file includes chapters/chapter1.tex where chapters is a sub-directory of where the root.tex file is located you could use

% !TEX root = ../root.tex

in chapter1; the ../ says go up one directory level to get to root.tex.

Good Luck,
