Do you know what encoding the file is? Where does the text come from? I guess that is the problem really.

Hey all,
I am currently reciving strings as such:
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim® - Hearthfire™
Although my python code is throwing up an error with regards to the R character at the end, is there anyway I can retrive and print the string exactly as it is displayed?
I think im on my way there with encode/decode but not sure exactly how to go about it.
I am able to get past the error with with .encode('utf8') but I retrieve this string:
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim┬« - HearthfireÔäó
