This is more likely an editor question than a Magento question but I think this group is the most likely to be able to help me so I’ll ask anyway.
I need to translate a Magento website into Chinese. I’ve downloaded the simplified Chinese language pack which works great (thank you!). Our website has several custom phrases that we usually translate using the locale files in the theme (app/design/frontend/theme_name/default/locale/zh_CN/translate.csv)
When I paste in the translations provided by our Chinese partners into an Excel spreadsheet and save it as an xls file, they are fine. When I convert that file to a .csv file as needed by Magento the Chinese isn’t saved properly and is wiped out. Can anyone help me understand how to save this Excel file as a csv file in a way that preserves the Chinese?
