I have got also utf-8 sites. I have been doing the same mistake as you 
are doing now wich is converting locallang.php to utf-8. The trick is 
that locallang.php shouldn't be coded in utf-8. So if you have BE set to 
utf-8 you can't edit it and translate under Typo3.
All you have to do is to get that file locally, open that file, set the 
charset coding of that file to your language iso code and translate it. 
No utf-8 here and it should works!

And yes... as a result locallang.php has lot of different coding. It was 
strange for me at the beggining because I always thought that /one file 
= one charset coding/ and setting diffrent charset coding would affect 
previous one but it works somehow with Typo3.

Give it a try and write if it helps you!
