you want to 'translate' your text in another language or 'convert' into another encoding?

Hey this can be options but it was just sample.

In real situation i will have 20-23 diffrent source file in diffrent character set encoding and i need to convert all of them to UTF-8.

All i want to know does iconv need some initial setup like language support etc or somthing else.

iconv changes the encoding, but not the content.
in your case, you could apply sed 'y/[allYourRussianLetters]/abcd...z/' command on all your 20-23 source files. to do the "translation"
