Firstly I doubt if Gmail would support hebrew contacts. AFAIK issues with unreadable contents when exporting contacts to CSV from outlook is because of missing fonts on the system. However would suggest you to change the interface of outlook to hebrew language and then export the contacts. this seems to have resolved issue with exporting hebrew contacts to csv file. for more info this this: http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/gmail/UGwWmi8x4Qo

Good day all ..

I did couple of trial where I ended up with great result .. but in fact I did this from MS office 2010 .. and without any need to change the MS outlook display language ..

1- Export your contacts to a file and select it to be MS EXCEL (97-2003)

2- after you get the exported file, open it in the MS EXCEL and make sure all characters are shown correctly and no ?????? at all

3- from the MS EXCEL save the file as, and select the file type to be CSV (but not the DOS one)

4- now the new saved as file will have all names OK and readable

5- one of the very important uses for it is to import your outlook contact into your Gmail contacts.

I hope it will work with you likewise it worked for me and made me able to import about 3000+ contact entry to my Gmail ..
