prefer-coding-system, utf-8, iso-8859-2

My problem:

I have received a file coded in utf-8. I have to translate parts
of it into Romanian

prefer-coding-system utf-8

C-x C-f filename

echo $LANG=ro_RO

set-input-method latin-2-postfix

Then I write my part.

Trying to save:

C-x C-s

the result is :

These default coding systems were tried:
However, none of them safely encodes the target text.

Select one of the following safe coding systems:
  x-ctext iso-2022-7bit raw-text emacs-mule no-conversion
  ctext-no-compositions iso-2022-8bit 


Yes, I know there was a thread in May covering exactly this
topic, but the suggested solution, prefer-coding-system, does not
work for me.

Emacs version: 

GNU Emacs 21.2.1 (i386-debian-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll
bars) of 2002-03-22 on raven, modified by Debian

Is there any solution to this? Am I doing something wrong?

thank you,

Emil Perhinschi
