I don't think you need a translation table to walk through an UTF-8 
String Unicode-Character by Unicode-Character (and create an UTF-8 
String as a loop variable containing this single Unicode Character in 
UTF-8 coding, This seems like a simple algorithm (disregarding the 
notorious Mac-Style double-characters that exist in Unicode 
independently of the UTF-coding style).

Of course the compiler needs to know that the "string" in fact is an 
UTF-8 String (I don't know if now there are different types for 
ANSIString and UTF8String.)
