Does that poll say that 82% of the users who voted use UTF-8? Well, if the
majority wins, that means the translation should stay in utf8.
If the reason wins, utf8 should be used as well. Not using a fine standard
when there is one is stupid.

Besides, the translation-help file has the following :
""In addition, for all new translations we would strongly recommend using UTF-8

You can try using convmv if you have filenames to convert, and recode if you
have text files to convert.
