Can't export Chinese Characters using Table Export

  • Question
  • Updated 2 years ago
We have a bi-lingual site in English and Chinese. The table export function works great in English but the CSV file output does not seem to support Chinese characters. I just get a bunch of garbled characters.

Does anyone know if there is a way to change how the file is exported (i.e. as an excel file instead of a .csv file) or any way convert the file after it is exported? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

I am able to reproduce this and am asking our devs to look into this. I'll keep you posted about what they find. 

Thanks!

Curious, when you run a standard Salesforce report that has your fields in Chinese, do those characters show up properly on the export?

Thanks!
