syslinux does currently not support any runtime configuration for its
help files; therefore you need to decide at buildtime which translations
should be included. this can be configured with LH_LANGUAGE.

no idea about the encoding. probably, one need to ship a special font
file for that. asking on the upstream syslinux mailinglist will get you
the right information.
