#2716 closed enhancement (duplicate)

german "umlaut"-letters in slugfields could be better

Reported by: dorian.santner@… Owned by: Adrian Holovaty
Component: Database layer (models, ORM) Version: 0.95
Severity: normal Keywords: umlaut slugfield
Cc: Triage Stage: Unreviewed
Has patch: no Needs documentation: no

Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no



when slugfields are generated from german textfields
it would result in much nicer slugs

if the umlauts where written in the following way
(currently umlauts are just cut away):

ü (= the html ü) -> ue

ö (= the html ö) -> oe

ä (= the html ä) -> ae

ß (= the html ß)-> sz

same with capital letters!

The resulting slugfield could still be read in german!

Also norwegian

æ (= æ) -> ae
ø (= ø) -> oe
å (= å) -> aa

Æ (= &Aelig;) -> Ae
Ø (= Ø) -> Oe
Å (= Å) -> Aa

Other bugs about this have been closed in favor of #2489, which aims to switch to Unicode throughout all of Django and is really the correct way to get at this, so I'm doing the same here.
