utf , standard output / input and grep too

is there a way to convert text from a utf encoding to 'normal' text so i could pipe it through grep and other programs that accept standard output?

iconv -f utf-8 -t desired_encoding <input_file >output_file
but if u have modern linux distro then if u change locale to some unicode then grep and other programs will handle utf input correctly (utf encoding is really a cool stuff)
