Hi, David.

We've been trying to deal with this problem for some time and can't 
seem to find a solution.  The problem is that the output of GnuPG is in 
UTF-8 and so needs to be set to use UTF-8 to display 
messages correctly but the translations do not come through in UTF-8 
(I'm guessing that they're usually in some encoding with the word Latin 
in it somewhere).  I find it odd that this doesn't cause problems on 
other systems, because it causes all sorts of weirdness over here.

How are the translations done?  What encodings are they available in?
