NOT all editors handle utf8 files correctly,
so it's NOT good to change all translations.
apparently it will get into some trouble.
- the editor i'm using does not break most of langs but does break some..
- well, assumed that the editor does break nothing,
  but please think how to edit those.
  I don't want to edit files which have strings I can't read/input
  such as accent'ed characters and russian, arabian, etc.

no need to CC me :-)
