It should only be required for non-ASCII characters if the encoding of the
po file is us-ascii, for example in pt_BR.us-ascii.po the @-commands for
accents need to be used.

In other cases, I think that it is best to leave it to the translators.
They can use @-commands if they wish, and not use them if they don't
want to, both for accented letters and, more generally, for styling.

This is explainined in
