It caused translations to not be available at all.

There's no 'iconv' command on msys1 environment.

That's a shame.

Looking at exes in gnuwin32-2019-12-20.7z, it seems to contain some sort of Python 2.7. Could that be used? It's a bit of a sledgehammer, but this bodge dies with msys1.

The following seems to do what's needed with Python 2 on my Linux system (although I'm not an expert on Python Unicode subtleties).

import sys; print(sys.stdin.read().decode('utf_8').encode('latin_1'))

Thank you for going to the considerable effort of fixing this.

While our Bokmål translation isn't currently much to look at, I can't imagine this glitch inspired confidence in our i18n from other language users; and getting this right opens the possibility of presenting language names in native orthography, if we want to (Русский, 中文, sort of thing).
