ufdbGuard has a database format that supports UTF8 characters but
only the latest beta (ufdbguard 1.32.5beta9) fully supports it.
I can send you a link to the beta software if you are interested.

how it works:
ufdbGuard as a utility to convert domains+urls files into a
database file which converts all %-encoded characters.
The URLs that Squid sends to ufdbGuard are also all converted
which means that URLs with %-encoded URLs and URLs without %-encoding
