Depending on the DBMS vendor, you may not have to do much of anything. Oracle provides translation via its NLS files which are settable per user. Setting up the Instance with UTF8 is the ticket.

Research the DBMS you'll be using and see what they provide, then you can decide what, if any support you'll need in the ERD.
