For most languages, you just need to set the table character set to UTF8
http://dev.mysql.com/tech-resources/articles/4.1/unicode.html

Then ensure you've enabled unicode in your CF dsn
1) Select  Data & Services > Datasources > (Your MySQL Datasource)
2) Click:   Show Advanced Settings
3) In "Connection Settings" enter:
useUnicode=true&characterEncoding=UTF-8

Open in new window


Save the settings
