Could you please try on http://demo.redmine.org if you face the same problem? If not, some part of your stack is misconfigured (for example, make sure the DB collation is UTF-8).

the installation guide is quite clear about how to make everything UTF-8 from the start, I can't say how to do it afterwards though. First find out how to check the collation/character set of your DB, then try to change it if it's not UTF-8.

Well, you would especially need to correct the encoding of the already existing redmine database, if memory serves what you have shown is the defaults for new databases. The other thing you need to take care of is the data already in the database: even if you change the encoding of a database/table to UTF-8, the data in the table will still have the wrong encoding, so you would need to convert it some way.
