I would like to know how to export an excel spreadsheet which contains, say a table of Hindi(for that matter any non-english) script words into a CSV file? I tried 'Save As' --> comma delimited, but the characters weren't preserved. When I opened the *.csv file, all i saw as ?????? characters.

Thanks, Sameer

If you are using Windows 10 then you can use this solution:

  1. Save As the file
  2. Select CSV UTF-8 as the Save As type

I have also attached a screenshot:

CSV File for  hindi and any other langauge
