I have a similar problem with people posting in Bulgarian mailing lists
and asked how to do this on the Emacs help ( newsgroup.

The easy way is to define functions that call `recode-region' on the
article buffer.  This is quick and avoid external scripts.  Bind the
function to a key (you may want to add an extra (save-excursion) and
jump to the article buffer, so it will work from any Gnus buffer) and
that's all.
