I use Contacts and Cobook on my mac to sort my contacts. When I export it only comes out as a .vcf file. I want to import these contacts into ODOO. Since odoo only imports .csv files I have tried to convert the .vcf file into a .csv file without anu sucess. I get errors like: 

Import preview failed due to: 'utf16' codec can't decode byte 0x73 in position 4: truncated data. The issue is usually an incorrect file encoding.

Here is the start of the file we could not import:

Does someone have experience in converting .vcf files from Contacts in Mac into a correct .csv format for odoo?

Thank you
