I don't know what you mean? The dir file is recreated from all installed
info files using the current system locale.

Does it mean it uses the locale of the *user* account? But how could it
be triggered or even write from a user account?

I am sure that GNU install-info is not "translating" anything, it saves
in the current locale of root running it.

What is you system locale? If it is bg_BG.UTF-8 the file should be saved
in UTF-8. Can you confirm that?

Or maybe I don't get the issue?!
