I've come across the same problem mentioned here - wanting to write a document using Russian and German.
Before that project I only used TexNicCenter, it supporting German when the system's non-Unicode support (via the control panel) is switched to German.
Now - the TexMaker doesn't really do it for me, as it neither gives me a mixed output.
I do want to use zerspinsboson's advise, as I'm really in need for some results here.

I downloaded notepad++, am not quite sure on how to work it now. Do I type the text in it and then copy/paste it into TexNicCenter just for the compiling process to pdf?
What is the advantage of notepad++? Is it "only" the fact that is takes Russian as well as German letters in "utf8 without BOM"-mode?
Thanks for your advises.
