Ewald Geschwinde,

CVSNT is an open source implementation of CVS for Windows, Unix, Linux, Mac OS 
X etc that also support Unicode.  With the "-ku" option the file will be 
checked in/out in UCS-2 (or UTF-16) encoding and internally stored as UTF-8 by 
the server.

If you can use unicode files for your multilingual documents then CVSNT will 
handle line endings, diff's and merges etc across all platforms.

cvs add -ku mydoc.txt
cvs commit -m "Add a new unicode document"

You can get CVSNT from
