Along lines of recent queries/questions, which had mostly sorted out, but, which was still trying to fine tune with regards to text file formats, in terms of writing as strings, or as binary files, and where was still trying to decide if wanted to worry about maybe specifically just handling forms of manual/hard-coded translations of certain accented characters which might relate to some of them that might get used quite often in names, etc., I just came across the following unidecode module:
https://pypi.python.org/pypi/Unidecode/

Seems to just take any unicode value, and 'translate' it into a string value, and will apparently try handle some forms of character substitution - but will play around with it a bit more, and let's see...

Stay well
