You cannot. First, \w in re.LOCALE works only when the text is encoded
with the locale encoding (cp1252 in your case). Second, re.LOCALE
supports only 8-bit charsets. So even if you set the utf-8 locale, it
would not help.
Regular expressions with re.LOCALE are slow. It may be more efficient to
decode text and use Unicode regular expression.
