Subversion stores filenames as UTF-8 internally. In order to be able
to present filenames to you properly, it needs to know what encoding
your terminal uses, so you need to set the LANG environment variable
to the correct value for your terminal.

I'm not sure how this applies to Redmine (never used it) but
presumably Redmine needs to tell Subversion what encoding to use.
