Why are international characters cut off in my import?

International charcters must be from a UTF8 encoded file to import properly.  Various versions of Excel are not the best tool to ensure UTF8 encoding.  Notepad++ is a free application that will allow you to open your .CSV file and convert it to UTF8.  Then save your file and retry your import.
