Exporting in Languages Other Than English

Today I tried to export some flashcards I have been making on MC for Greek and Hebrew into CSV and TSV formats so that I can share them with some friends who aren't on macs. Both times the Greek and Hebrew words came out as gibberish symbols (see the attached document). As far as I am aware, I have been creating my flashcards using unicode (specifically the two mac keyboards "Greek Polytonic" and "Hebrew - QWERTY"), so why would the export come out this way? Any help on how to fix this or export in another way would be much appreciated!

    Hi Ethan,
    How are you actually examining the file's contents?
    When I open it in a good text editor, it looks fine (see screenshot).
    You need a program that can handle unicode. Note that Excel doesn't handle unicode well.
