Maybe I missed an issue here but if you open an ISO-8859-1 doc in TM  
(or maybe via File > Reopen with Encoding >) TM doesn't destroy that  
encoding. For saving you can choose "Save As" to assure that TM saves  
it as ISO-8859-1.

An other option to convert ISO-8859-1 to UTF-8 is to make usage of the  
UNIX tool 'iconv -f LATIN1 -t UTF-8 THE_FILE' which one can run as  
batch to convert all files in a dir.
