Typically you need to tell Perl to treat them as UTF-8. Without knowing exactly how you're getting your 
strings into Perl, there are a number of ways to do this ( For 
instance, if you're reading from a filehandle you can set its mode:

binmode(\*STDIN, ':utf8');

Or you can can specifically mark the string after it's imported:

use Encode;
$str = Encode::decode("UTF-8", $str);

One of these might help with your issue.
