All the .po files are created with a UTF-8 charset, so your locale is not
UTF-8 then that would certainly cause messed up accentuated characters.

To be honest I don't know what todo here. Out of all the .mo files I have
installed in /usr/share/locale/fr/LC_MESSAGES/  170 are in UTF-8, and only
30 in iso8859-1, so virt-manager is following most common behavuour of 
other apps which are translated AFAICT.

My preference is to say just use UTF-8 locales, unless someone has better
