There are two things to consider. One is the storage and the other the client connection. Storage is of course done in the database so you have to enable the correct charaset (collation) for your schemas. Read for more details on that part. For the client connection you will need to enable UTF-8 encoding for your sessions. By using MySQL Query Browser your are freed from taking care for that part. QB already uses UTF-8 for its communication with the server, so all you have to do is to make sure your data is stored in columns that support Unicode.
