I sounds like this file is in a multi-byte unicode charset, e.g. utf-16 or
ucs-2, in which case you could solve your problem by translating it to
something octave can read, like utf-8.

Most linux distros come with the iconv utility. You could try experimenting
with something like

iconv -f utf-16 -t utf-8 <bad.csv >good.csv

and see if it works better.
