I have both the latest versions of these 2 plugins. Both seem to assume CP1252 encoding. Since CMSB 3.53 now uses utf8mb4_unicode_ci encoding, it would be better if the default encoding is UTF-8 or at least provide an option to select the desired encoding.

Hi Jeff, 

Sorry for the delay, you can set the charset for CSV Import in the plugin with this line :

'ENCODING' => 'CP1252', // CP1252, ASCII, ISO-8859-1, UTF-8 - More: http://php.net/manual/en/mbstring.supported-encodings.php

And for CSV Export I believe it should export at UTF-8.  

But if either of those aren't working for you or are still an issue let me know and we'll get someone on it.
