Hi Pero,

for UTF8 ist made the following settings in localconf.php:

$TYPO3_CONF_VARS['BE']['forceCharset'] = 'utf-8';
$TYPO3_CONF_VARS['SYS']['setDBinit'] = 'SET NAMES utf8'.chr(10).'SET 
character_set_connection = utf8';	// Modified or inserted by TYPO3 
Install Tool.
$TYPO3_CONF_VARS['SYS']['UTF8filesystem'] = 1;

Corresponding for iso-8859-2 you should set it like follows I think:

$TYPO3_CONF_VARS['BE']['forceCharset'] = 'iso-8859-2';
$TYPO3_CONF_VARS['SYS']['setDBinit'] = 'SET NAMES 
iso-8859-2'.chr(10).'SET character_set_connection = iso-8859-2';
$TYPO3_CONF_VARS['SYS']['UTF8filesystem'] = 0;

... Because the default-connection of TYPO3 is iso-8859-1.

I suppose that's all but you can read the linked article if it doesn't work:

Best Regards
