You can use this tool to convert (you have to register to download it).

Don't you know Google translate?

You just have to copy and paste text.

It seems no effect, the database collation really become a utf-8, but the content has not changed, the site is still only the language set schinese can normally access.

If the only thing that is wrong is the encoding of the content, you could do following:
- make a backup of the whole database
- export the content of tables that you want to change
- open the exported file in the tool like Notepad++ change the encoding to UTF-8
- delete the tables from the database
- import back the tables from the file modified in Notepad++

Or you can do it at the MySQL level, but you need to know what you're doing. See here or here
