Summary0016907: Exporting/importing non UTF-8 CSV files
DescriptionThis concerns both the Subscriber Export and Subscriber Import categories.
If the site uses UTF-8, phpList saves/imports CSV files using UTF-8 encoding, but programs such as Excel don't support UTF-8 CSV files.

It would be a great if there was either:
1) Each [language].inc would have something like:
$csvCharSet = 'windows-1255';
which would be used by phpList instead of (only if (isset($csvCharSet)) when it imports and exports CSV files.
2) A text input field with "CSV encoding" for both importing and exporting.
But 1) is much more friendlier option.
TagsNo tags attached.

1) is not a viable action, since not everybody in Germany uses the same charset - some use UTF8, users from the past are using ISO-8559-1x

I, for example, use PHPLIST in English, since the German translation is incomplete. Still I would want to import CSV with special charcters in them!

Something along the lines of option 2) with a preset of $csvCharSet belonging to the language selected could help.

Or some sort of autodetection ala "file".
