How can I change language to UTF-8

Please help me,
I want to change language to vietnamese and already format all file to UTF-8 but my site do not work.
locale/[language]/global.php change line:
$locale['charset'] = "iso-8859-1";

$locale['charset'] = "UTF-8";

@bdo that's not the problem.

you have to change all database content to utf and it is not easy cause every èòìàù character will show ?
Can't this be done by taking a db-backup from Admin-panel on the site, and then import the db-backup via phpMyAdmin and import it in the right language/character ??

I do this for both my own sites and for my users on my site too. Sometimes we have problem with showing tha danish letters æøå/ÆØÅ on some servers. I work around this by importing the db-backup in phpMyAdmin and then choose for character Latin1 (for us Danish users).
Yes, I do like smokeman : save the DB with the option "drop table if exists", use a nice text editor (I use Notepad++), convert to UTF-8 (Notepad++ has the feature), save and re-import the DB while carefully chosing the import charset in PHPMyAdmin.
But you still have to do what bdo stated to avoid mixing charsets in the future.
nop didnt helped :(
