Yes.  A Lisp program which needs to do that should invoke
detect-coding-region and then decode the text with
decode-coding-region.

(That's an oversimplification: the code should pay attention to
coding-system-for-read if non-nil, support the coding: tags, invoke
find-operation-coding-system, etc.)
