Ecoding Error with Latex PDF

I converted a PDF created with pdflatex with the ExportPDF online tool. All PDF readers have no problem viewing the PDF file but the resulting *.docx file contains weird characters.

As an minimal example: This is a latex file

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

\begin{document}

Über

\end{document}

creating a simple pdf with only the german word "Über".

After converting with ExportPDF MS Word displays those characters.

What could cause this? Any idea how to fix this?

It seems that exportpdf is not able to handle the default font "Computer Modern" of latex. I suppose the only fix is use a different fontfamily.
