Support for CSV with föreign letters (äöå) when using ArcGIS Online's add file option

Hi,
I've used ArcGIS Online for some time now and it has worked very good for CSV files with foreign letters. I usually drag and drop the file to the map without any problem perserving my Swedish letters (öäå).
I'm now using AGOL subscription to add a CSV file with more than 1000 points. When I add the CSV file using the menu: Add --> Add layer from file I lost my Swedish characters.

First I thought was a problem of ArcGIS Online for organizations, but now I have tested that it also occurs in ArcGIS.com. If I add to the map the same CSV file via the menu I lost my Swedish characters.
Is there a workaround to this? I need to publish a CSV file with more than 1000 points and keep my foreign letters.

Can be this a little problem that needs to be fixed in the ArcGIS Online cloud? Perhaps review what the menu does to the files? or looking into support for international letters?
Thank you ver much for your prompt answer.

PS. Attach a print screen of the result of adding the same CSV file via the Add menu and the drag&drop method.
