There is a table at the end of Defaults.py which defines the supported
languages and their Mailman character sets. Many languages are already
utf-8 encoded.

You might think that changing the character set for a language is a
simple matter of just redefining the character set and recoding the
message catalog and templates, but it's more complicated than that. See
the thread at
and the bug report at <https://bugs.launchpad.net/mailman/+bug/1462755/>.
