I imported German text through Feed Me, but the special characters show up as unicode characters:

“Ich interessiere mich sehr f\u00fcr Alte Musik”

I tried a filter when outputting the text, but no success: |convert_encoding("ISO-8859-1","UNICODE-1-1")

However, would prefer to have the text be readable in the backend as well not just on the frontend with the filter.

Any help would really be appreciated!

If this were PHP, you'd need to run that through html_entity_decode to get it to convert.

I don't think there's an equivalent way to do that from Twig, but you could write a simple plugin that added an htmlentitydecode Twig filter to pull it off.
