Migrating outlook contacts from 1 language to another

I have a user moving from a German based laptop to an english based laptop.

His contacts in outlook 2003 are in German etc...
If i use the import / export option to create a csv file on the source German PC and then import at the destination english PC - not al contacts come across ....

Is there a different way to achieve this .. his contacts list is about 4000 objects.

Both PCS are

WinXP Pro SP2
Office 2003 Pro

Try breaking the CSV file up in multiple files containing fewer than 1000 contacts each and import each file individually.
Any luck?

No that was not the solution.
I eventually created an excel copy of the German version then created an english copy in excel by using a web translator . using this method I was able to map all the fields across to the english version and then attach it to the users outlook client.
it was a bit of a work around but hey it fixed the issue

Thanks for the suggestion though
