I believe a search on the discussion archives will tell you that the
UTF-8 (and other Unicode sets) would require a significant recoding of
swish-e. So far, no one has stepped forward to do that.
In your case, if there are UTF chars that have direct iso8859
equivalents, you might play with the WordCharacters and
TranslateCharacters config settings. That way things in the 8859 range
of > 128 might work for you.
Please, someone with better encoding knowhow than me, correct this if it
