Conf files converted to utf-8 do work for the UI. I ran into a problem 
at first that prevented the files from being read properly. I'm using 
TecKit, a program that can quickly convert files from code-page 
encodings to various unicode formats. It places three characters at the 
beginning of the file to indicate that this is a utf-8 encoded file (in 
hex 'EF BB BF'). MS programs add these characters as well when saving to 
a unicode text format. I had to manually remove these characters before 
Sword would recognize the conf files and include the Thai language as an 
option. This makes it difficult for Windows users to create their own UI 
files as it is not obvious what is causing the problem.

There seem to be some additional translations available for Window 
titles which is nice. Could you add 'on/off' as well if it has not been 
done yet? 'on/off' is used with the various switches available on the menu.
