Hi,

I have a python script at the moment that parses text and adds it to an excel file. Everything is working great if the language is english but I also need it to work with russian characters.

I believe this can be resolved by setting the right encoding but I have no clue how to.

I think this is a very easy fix for someone that understands this thing.
