This question already has an answer here:

I keep getting UnicodeEncodeError when trying to print a ‘Á’ that I get from a website requested using selenium in python 3.4.

I already defined at the top of my .py file

# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-

the def is something like this:

from selenium import webdriver
b
= webdriver.Firefox()
b
.get('http://fisica.uniandes.edu.co/personal/profesores-de-planta')
dataProf
= b.find_elements_by_css_selector('td[width="508"]')
for dato in dataProf:
print(datos.text)

and the exception:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:/Users/Andres/Desktop/scrap/scrap.py", line 444, in <module>
dar_p_fisica
()
File "C:/Users/Andres/Desktop/scrap/scrap.py", line 390, in dar_p_fisica
print(datos.text) #.encode().decode('ascii', 'ignore')
File "C:\Python34\lib\encodings\cp1252.py", line 19, in encode
return codecs.charmap_encode(input,self.errors,encoding_table)[0]
UnicodeEncodeError: 'charmap' codec can't encode character '\u2010' in position 173: character maps to <undefined>

thanks in advance

Already figured it out. As it is noted in this answer, the encoding error doesnt come from python, but from the encoding that the console is using. So the way to fix it is to run the command (in windows):

chcp 65001

that sets the encoding to UTF-8 and then run the program again. Or if working on pycharm as I was, go to Settings>Editor>File Encodings and set the IDE and Project encodings accondingly.
