I am build a webapp. Should I ignore the diacritics in the search function?
I am non-native speaker myself and I prefer when search engines ignore/substitute for the diacritics of my language. Others probably prefer it too but is there a consensus?
And what should be the correct mapping? Internet suggests this but how authoritative it is?
And how about non-latin scripts? From what I know for instance Russian language has soft and hard consonants, what is the best practice there?
