Try importing/exporting to a tab-delimited file and see if you have the
same problem. If you do, then it is an Interchange problem and we
will certainly take a look at it.

If you don't see the same problem, it is a Spreadheet::WriteExcel
or Spreadsheet::ParseExcel problem, or in our interfacing thereto.
But a quick perusal of the docs for those don't mention any methods
which allow us to specify the character set.
