Since I use US english only this is not a problem for me. You would need
to check what the character encoding methods for your version of Samba and
of NetAtalk are. Please send me your smb.conf and your
AppleVolumes.default files as well as what version of each product
(netatalk and Samba) that you are running. I will check into this for you
