I even have code for it that should work in Pharo (see below).
I had it in comments in our application code because it does not work in Gemstone (no utf16 encoder).

But if I remember correctly, this works for cross-platform csv import in Excel. Just mind that you need to use tabs to separate the fields instead of commas (or semicolons ;-)

Hope this helps

								attachmentWithFileName: 'nextplan',Date today yyyymmdd,'.csv';
								contentType: ((WAMimeType main: 'text' sub: 'csv')
											charset: 'utf-16');
								converter := UTF16TextConverter new useLittleEndian: true; useByteOrderMark: true.
								response nextPutAll: ((String streamContents: [:str | 
											 self exportCSVFor: coll on: str]) convertToWithConverter: converter) asByteArray]];
