Am I correct in understanding that you just want the ability to write

    translate( L"日本語" )

instead, with the wide literal automatically converted from UTF-16 to UTF-8
by the library? Or do you demand something more, such as the ability to
write translate("日本語") and have the library correctly handle shift-JIS?
