    Hi,
    After opening this thread:
    http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/12361
    I see there is no solution or support for non-latin characters in wordpress community.

    I understand worrying about breaking backwards compatibility but still thinking of needed some love for non-latin characters in permalinks.

    If people can use russian characters, like: примерно
    There must be an option support or a way to use those characters like: şŞ İı Ğğ Üü Öö çÇ

    (Sorry for bad english)

    I agree. WordPress needs to be international. Ryan says "Changing how slugs are encoded breaks resolution of old slugs" but why can't there be 2 methods for creating slugs, and an option on the Dashboard that allows people to chose which method they want to use?

    It would be great! I use on my (german) blog and on my website 2 languages, 1-german, 2-russian. Some plugins don't show the Cyrillic alphabet. But it works with "pure russian" WordPress.
    I don't really understand the reason... It would be great, to find the solution to combine all the characters.

    On my blog, it can handle the hebrew and the french, but I have never tried to use the hebrew for the slugs.

    Hi unsalkorkmaz,

    I agree with your opinion. A simple and comfortable solution to include non-latin characters would be quite useful for example for users, who'd like to build up a wp-blog with cyrillic or chinese characters.

    @iPad: I'm curious to see, how this patch works, when ready... ;-)

  8. An what about German characters such as Ä, Ö, Ü in URLs. Why isnt it possible. WordPress just cuts them off...

    I would also prefer to have an ability to display my korean characters in WP. I actually don't know a way of how to realize this. As I saw, there is a beginning of a patch. Hope, this patch will be available soon... Or even better - hope it will be a feature in the next version of WP.
