To convert your printer output on Windows, you can use the
GNU recode tool: GNU `recode' can convert data between character
sets and usages. We have compiled GNU recode tool for the Windows
platform. You can download it from our from our ftp server
To recode Eloquence printer output, you can define a printer
(in this example connected to LPT1) like shown below.
The ... specifies the path where the recode.exe program is installed.
PRINTER 1 PIPE "C:\...\Recode.exe -w LPT1: roman8:latin1"

below (this must be a single line):
PRINTER 17 PIPE "C:\...\Recode.exe -w //SERVER/Oki521
