[ODK Community] Characters not appearing in CSV file

You need to ensure you have loaded those same unicode fonts in your
installation of Office (i.e., .ttf files).

Hi everyone,
I'm not entirely sure if this is entirely ODK related, but since this
seems to be a fairly helpful community, I thought I'd give it a shot.

When answering questions in another language in Collect, in let's say,
Korean, the characters appear fine in the tablet and even generate fine in
Aggregate. I run into an issue when exporting the CSV aggregate file and
then trying to open it with Excel. The cells with questions answered in
Korean characters are shown with "???" instead.

After investigating the issue for a bit, I'm fairly certain that the
solution is buried somewhere in Excel. However, since so many of you work
with different languages, I thought I'd ask whether anyone has a simple
solution or has run into similar problems? Thanks in advance for all your
