This work:


B4X:
Dim lines As List   
Dim tr As TextReader

...

Sub lingua(l_number As Int) As String
 l_number=l_number-1
 tr.Initialize2(File.OpenInput(File.DirDefaultExternal, "english.txt"), "ISO-8859-1")
 lines = tr.ReadList
 tr.Close


 'return the line text with ç á ü ƒ etc

 Return(lines.Get(l_number))

End Sub
