The simplest way is to use UTF-8 encoding which supports practically all languages.

The composing form should have "accept-charset" attribute
<form ... accept-charset="UTF-8">
Preferably also set the UTF-8 charset in the HTML' META tag for the whole page
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />

and the Content-Type in the email's relevant part (in the multipart) should be changed to
text/plain; charset=UTF-8

These simple change should do the trick.

thanks

    Most of these are already implemented for inclusion in the next Usermin release. I will add accept-charset too though..
