Importing Excel 2007 Japanese gloss into MT 2007

I have quite a large Japanese glossary in Excel 2007 and am unable to import successfully into MT 2007.
I have done quite some research and figured out that the import is successful using roman alphabets (romaji). But with Japanese characters although the file gets imported WB automatic term recognition doesnt work.
The problem probably exists in saving the Excel 2007 file as *.csv.
Is there any way I can directly save the Excel 2007 file as a *.csv file in Unicode/UTF-8 so that the double byte content remains intact?
Excel file saved as Unicode text retains double byte content. But if it is saved as *.csv the double byte characters get garbled and are shown as ?????
Any ideas anybody?

How about using Kanji code converting tool? May 6, 2010

I don't know much about the problem special to Excel 2007, but if your file is a pure "text" file, how about trying a Kanji code converter, like this:

Kanji Translater 1.6 (freeware)

I don't know what the result would be, but I think it's worth giving a try.
