    I am by no means an expert on this, but wouldn't the collation you use for your database have some effect on this?
    If your database are in utf8 I would go with that as the charset in the language setting, and just live with the old posts having strange characters. It would probably be easy to edit those to be correct (if not extremly many).
    Anyway, main point I try to make is that I think you should use the same encoding of the database as you have set as charset in the language setting.

    We do not use UTF8 here and those languages work fine here.

    My issue is not in new threads, just in existing ones, and once i revert to ISO, they all look fine but i need utf-8 now.
    And those suggestions did nothing too.

    Huh? I was asking what you have set there and you didn't answer that question.

    What do you have set in Language Manager > select language to Edit Settings > HTML Character Set ?

    I don't think it's a database problem, because when i set the charset back to ISO-8859-1, everything looks good, a switch back to utf-8 again will cause the same issue, it's vbulletin/language issue i guess.
