How to export csv in UTF-8 ?

I can export CSV of products by using "export" when I am on the products list. However, the csv is encoded in ANSI. How could I encode it in UTF-8 ?

Hi Nehal, thanks for the link, but I need to have the file directly in UTF-8 when I click the "export" button. I can't have an extra step like converting it myself... I'd like to know what files are used for the export function ?

Find the export_data method in file your_server_addons/osv/orm.py file and web/controllers/main.py index method those are used to export the data from OpenERP.
