I am not yet aware of someone using our tools with non-English source
language. The problem with plurals was mentioned on the Debian list. I
think our tools should correctly decode the non-ascii msgids according
the character set in the header, although this is not tested, of course.
I think I have seen some msgids with things like smart quotes which
won't be present in 8 bit character sets. Most tools could probably work
with it without problems.

Just at the Wordforge end (Pootle, Translate Toolkit etc.), it might be interesting to test the tools with a non-English set of original strings. Then we would have more data.
