Looks like the nl.po file of countrychooser is a very strange mix of
iso-8859-1 and UTf-8.....or even iso-8859-1 treated as utf-8...:-)

Encoding issues are tricky with countrychooser as it is highly better
if this translation uses the same encoding than iso-codes translation.

There is also an error in iso-codes for the "Réunion" entry as you

I will correct both these errors in both repositories.

Correcting them may take time as this requires an upload for iso-codes
and then a rebuild of countrychooser.
