What language are we talking about? (The answer is not "Korean, you doofus, didn't I say that?" ;) ) The database itself doesn't do the work; it just stores what you give it. Different languages have different decoding commands. Sometimes more than one per language.
If it's any consolation, occasional visits to the in-progress areas of Google In Your Language suggest that even they haven't got it figured out yet :)

I have some content that users have entered through different forms.
Missed this bit. You mean different physical forms, as in <form>? Or informally, as in "in different ways"?
Are the information-entering points all on your site? All on the same page? How many different forms? You have to assume that your users aren't literally typing ո or equivalent. So something is happening to some of your forms that isn't happening to the others. The solution may turn out to involve doing less rather than doing more :)
I've tried CF's encode/decode functions, but there is no change.
