      Description

      NOTE: This suggestion is for Confluence Server. Using Confluence Cloud? See the corresponding suggestion.

      We have an issue here with confluence that prevent us to adopt it fully in our company .

      In the French language, we use accents, such as é,à,é,etc.. and we need Confluence to ignore those accents for searchs, like google does.

      For instance the search text: "majore", should give us pages with "majoré" or "majore" or "majorè"

      It would be very useful if we could configure the search feature to be able to ignore accents.

      Languages that should ignore accents for searches are:

      • English (for loanwords, and also cover other European languages not supported in Confluence indexing)
      • French
      • Spanish
      • Catalan (not supported in Confluence indexing)
      • Portuguese (currently only Brazilian Portuguese is supported in Confluence indexing)
