i18n UTF-8 or Umlaut Problems within Plugin

I'm trying to output a simple String with ä,ö,ü from my properties file which is UTF-8 encoded.

Furthermore I changed my pom.xml to reflect this change:

<build><plugins><plugin><configuration><encoding>UTF-8</encoding>...

and <properties><project.build.sourceEncoding>UTF-8</project.build.sourceEncoding>...

i tried following in my velocity.file $i18n.getText("KEY") But it returns Ähnliche Vorgänge instead of Ähnliche Vorgänge.

Help is appreciated ;)

By default properties files use ISO 8859-1 encoding:

http://docs.oracle.com/javase/6/docs/api/java/util/Properties.html

One solution is replacing the umlauts with their unicode codes:

Ä, ä 		\u00c4, \u00e4
Ö, ö 		\u00d6, \u00f6
Ü, ü 		\u00dc, \u00fc
ß 		    \u00df
€           \u20ac

More practical is using an properties editor:

Thx for your answer, I will try the Mac Built-In Properties editor.
