UTF-8 converter?

Hello again,
I would have yet another question related to files:
Is somebody aware of the existence of a Converter (Converters.Converter)
for UTF-8 encoded files?
There is a Unicode converter in BlackBox already, but it is not appropriate
to UTF-8 files. UTF-8 encoding is a bit "particular", as standard ASCII characters
are represented as single bytes while non-standard ones as sequences of bytes
of varying size. Unicode converters expect instead fixed size per character.
I need a converter specifically under BlackBox since I need to
process a large amount of files in UTF-8 format, and it's not convenient for me
to store an intermediate version of these file (supposing that I could
decode the files outside BlackBox).
I wonder if somebody implemented such a converter for BlackBox
or knows whether it exists or not. Thank you for your answers,
