Letters with diaeresis (diacritic) in repeating section show code in list

Latin letters with diacritical marks (trema or umlaut), such as ë or ö, register in code in the XML. When retrieving the repeating section form data and writing this data to (another) list, these letters still show code. For example "cliënt" (client in Dutch) is registered as "cliënt" in the list.

 

How do I solve this?

 

I could prevent diacritics being used on the form by putting in the regular expression [a-zA-Z] but this isn't my preferred solution because then technically words would be spelled wrong. Is there any other way to clean up the XML?
