Chinese encoding

edited November 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I have added Vanilla 1.1.3 to my server and its running well, but ive been trying to add Chinese to it and am having encoding problems. If I type Chinese in I get question marks and if i try to change the language of the forum all of the words just group together and x's appear instead of numbers. I read up and I changed some of the code in the setting.php and it made no diiferences. So I checked my phpmyadmin and found all the files in my database are latin1_swedish_ci NOT UTF8. If I change them to UTF8 will it fix my problems? Will it damage my forum if I give it a go?
