I did something similar some time ago using the command line client:
- from the command line, create the list of files, like "dir *.* >
- duplicate the "files.txt" and replace all umlauts in the duplicate file.
- take any editor supporting "column mode" (I use Ultraedit, it's
shareware) and open "files.txt".
- using column mode, insert in all lines, at the beginning,
"svn rename "
- copy the content of the file with fixed file names into the clipboard,
- in editor, go to a column beyond the longest file name and paste fixed
- in this moment every line in editor will look like:
     "svn rename <file_name_with_umlauts> <file_name_without_umlauts>"
- save the editor content as batch file,
- DOUBLE-CHECK the content of the batch file,
- run the batch file.

This is how I did it once. If I remember correctly, there is a way to
rename directly within repository by using the URL of the file (use
"http://server/path/filename", not the path into the local copy; you may
have to specify a message with "-m"; be the "svn help rename" with you!
