When replying, please don't top-post, and please trim your quoting a
little. My answers are below.

As I understand it, "can't recode string" does not relate to the
content of any file in your repository. It just relates to your
locale settings.

You have showed me the locale settings when running in your shell.
But as I said, environment variables are different (usually absent)
in your hook scripts. You will need to set the locale inside the hook
script, for example by running "export LANG=es_ES.UTF-8" as the first
line in your hook script.
