Zendesk CSV is a CSV-based file type used to load localized dynamic data for Zendesk applications.

A Zendesk CSV typically has five fields for each line (title, default language, default text, locale-specific text, and variant status). Source and localized strings are placed in field 3 and 4. 

Generally, it does not matter if each field is in double-quotes in .CSV files but it is recommended for Zendesk CSV.
