[Koha] Retrieving records that use diacriticals

We are cataloging many non-English titles that use diacriticals.  In order to resolve the issue of searching by author or title without using diacriticals, I used the 720 tag (Uncontrolled Name) but when I try to retrieve the record on that field, I cannot bring it up.  Should I use indicators or omit them?  Is the name inverted or regular order? Should I use another tag? And while I'm on the topic of foreign languages, what about alternative tags for title?
