UTF-8 translation woos

I'm developing a credit card application that is using SOAP transactions.
SOAP requires translating to UTF-8 CCSID.  The output translation result is
being truncated because it is larger than the input do to special
characters in the credit card track data. If I pad the SOAP content with
trailing blanks to allow for the larger output translation result, the
transaction processes successfully.

Other than padding with trailing blanks, which is a guessing game as to how
much to pad, is there another way to overcome this issue.

I'm using the http_url_post_xml method to process the credit card through
an SSL connection.
