Watchlist - Added movies to my watchlist, but they do not show up in the exported file (.csv) - how come?

As the title says, today I added some movies to the my watchlist.

Exported the list to a .csv and imported it into Excel. The ones I added are missing, although there is a 'checkmark' at 'In my watchlist'

Any suggestions?

It is about an hour ago - does it take time to internally update the list?

I just tried adding one title and exporting; had no problem.

You may want to include screenshots.

Thanks for the replies. 

Please do note that I have an existing watchlist for already quite a while. The movies added yesterday, they do not show up in the .csv file.

As for 'technical details' :

Device: Desktop PC

OS: Windows 10 x64  
Browser: Edge Version 108.0.1462.76 (Official build) (64-bit)

do not use the app so far

below some movies that I added but do not show up.

1. checked the watchlist using Chrome, same number of entries. 1100

2. I tried to 're-add' some of those 'missing entries' by UN-checking and then re-adding them to the watchlist, makes no difference, regretfully so.

3. FWIW, there is no difference overnight


Later: solved...

movies are added using the original non-english movie title ...
