A couple questions:

1) Which variables you are changing in the catalog.cfg file?

2) Where are the breakages occurring; i.e., what are you expecting to  
display in Chinese that isn't?

3) Is your database currently set up to use UTF-8 as the encoding?   
Can you provide the database type and version number?

4) Have you verified that the source file that you are trying to load  
is in the UTF-8 encoding?  It sounds like you are trying to load  
product descriptions; can you give a more detailed explanation of what  
you are trying to do?
