I'm trying to export my issues by clicking "Also available in: CSV" link at the bottom of the list.

In Windows world, UTF8 text files must begin with the 3 bytes 0xEF, 0xBB, 0xBF.
That bytes are called Byte order mark (BOM):

Without them, all Windows software (notepad, Excel, etc) assume the file is ASCII, and displays garbage instead of the international characters. This makes the .CSV unusable unless it's in English.
