This is not UTF-8, but GB2312 encoding. It wold be better if your
partner switches to a zh_CN.UTF-8 locale and uses this as default. Then
the filenames would be in UTF-8 instead of GB2312 and you can display
them on your english system if you use en_US.UTF-8 as locale.
I don't know which input method she uses, but chinput also works under
for converting a bunch of filenames from GB2312 into UTF-8, take a look
at the 'convmv' package in debian.
