ascii encoding error in block input (COPY INTO)

I found previous
that the server would expect UTF-8 input from the client or COPY INTO,
so I need to work on my my Western ISO Latin 1 files. However, the error
message is confusing about, COPY INTO complains about "'ascii' codec can't
decode byte 0xc4 in position 8: ordinal not in range(128)."

Shall I convert the data to UTF-8 then, or is that futile? What has the
ascii codec to do with UTF-8?
