Use latest bleeding-jumbo from GitHub, and read doc/ENCODING.
In my opinion you should un-comment all encoding settings in john.conf:

	DefaultEncoding = UTF-8
	DefaultMSCodepage = CP850
	DefaultInternalEncoding = CP1252
	WarnEncoding = Y
	AlwaysReportUTF8 = Y
	UnicodeStoreUTF8 = Y
	CPstoreUTF8 = Y

For cracking non-ASCII LM hashes other than CP850, use --target-encoding 
option or change the DefaultMSCodepage.

For using rules with non-ASCII characters other than CP1252, use 
--internal-encoding or change the DefaultInternalEncoding.

...from that point, always use UTF-8 wordlists (and input files, for 
usernames, GECOS and stuff) only.
