If the files can be detected by filename then variable auto-coding-alist
may be useful. As the name says it's an association list consisting of
items "(REGEXP . CODING-SYSTEM)". There is also the variable
auto-coding-functions which is a list of functions for determining
conding systems. For more info, see:

    C-h v auto-coding-alist RET
    C-h v auto-coding-functions RET
