Searches are not including accents in search terms
Summary: If the GSA receives a search for a word with or without an accent, it may not search for the similar word without or with the accent.
Cause: This can happen in a number of cases:
- When the GSA does not properly detect the search as occurring in a language where the letter can have an accent
- Accent-insensitive search does not work with metadata
- Accent-insensitive search only works on one language at a time
Fix: Ensure that the search query specifies the language in the "lr" parameter. For example, to search in Portuguese, the search query URL should look like this:
