You can use $wgLang->iconv(), which is a wrapper

available) or utf8_decode/utf8_encode as a hacky fallback if iconv is
not available. $wgInputEncoding store the encoding internally used.
iconv did the trick, thank you.
Since UTF-8 to Latin-1 conversion is lossy, you should only do this if
it's really necessary and you are unable to process Unicode text.
Yes sure. I'll keep an eye on it.
Thanks for your help,
