UTF-8 is only used for storage on disk. The translated text are converted on-
the-fly to the adequate character encoding as needed. If the target encoding 
lacks some characters, then comes automatic transliteration.

If you want to avoid transliteration, simply limit the translated text to 
characters that can be represented in the relevant target encoding.
