I work in Korean company and we design in both languages (english and korean) so our excel tabkles contain mostly korean characters but when are written in the txt or csv file photoshop can not recognized and just sustitude the text for strange symbols. Anybody got this problem too and know how to solve it? thanks

You need to set the text to unicode and use a text editor that supports unicode.

 

File.encoding sets the encoding for a text file. You want to use UTF-8 most likely,

You would need to post on an Excel site to get Excel help.

For me the problem was Excel, as I couldn't quickly/easily change the CSV format to use Unicode encoding.

 

I used LibreOffice/OpenOffice which does make this easier.

 

I then opened the resulting .csv file into a capable plain text editor (NotePad++) which confirmed the encoding and the characters were exported as intended.

You have to specify UTF-8 in BOTH Excel and Photoshop.
