Subversion is no different.

Check out trunk, make some edits.

Make a branch: svn cp URL1 URL2, where presumably URL1 is the trunk
you've already checked out.

Update your working copy to the branch: svn switch URL2. Your local
mods should continue to exist cleanly, no conflicts at all, because
URL2 and URL1 are identical.

Commit. Poof, your changes went to the branch.
