Description

When language on "My Account" is set to “English” , then the Japanese character strings in tickets change to “????” when exporting to csv.

This is caused by that in "config/locales/en.yml" the English encoding setting is "general_csv_encoding: ISO-8859-1". If the setting is "general_csv_encoding: UTF-8", "????" will not happen.

Many users use both English and native language (not-English).

So "general_csv_encoding:" should be "UTF-8" in en.yml.English is special and different from other languages.

FYI: You can switch the CSV encoding to UTF-8 when exporting data. This feature is supported in Redmine 4.0 or later (#26279).

Sorry for not knowing the improvement of Redmine 4.x. My Redmine version is still 3.x. Please close this issue. And I now understand that UTF-8 with BOM causes error with old versions's excel.
