When using Import CSV of objects with special characters, these characters are not taken into account, even when CSV file is saved with UTF-8 encoding.
The result will show for example:



Editor for example MS Excel


Checking the source file in different editors (Google Sheets, Sublime, etc. ) show, that the UTF-8 encoding is not correctly applied


This comes down to the Editor and its support of UTF-8. Using another Editor ( i.e. Sublime or Google Sheets) and resaving the file using that Editor before the export will fix the issue.

Please see CSV Import for other details when importing Insight Objects.
