Overview

Nowadays it is really important for software to be ready for multi-languages user. This custom package contains four activities, which are really helpful in formatting i.e for formatting user input/any string or detecting if provided string contains diacritics or accents.
For example diacritics are: "á, â, ü, ñ, ç, ø, ß"
But from the same group accents are only: "á, â, ü, ñ, ç"
The activities from this package will help you to easily check if the provided string contains diacritics or accents and also easily convert them to non-diacritics letters. For example you have in the system a user: Renée Noël and you have to convert it to e-mail. In the system this user exists as Renee Noel, so using the below listed activities you can easily check if this name contains diacritics/accents and if so convert this name to non-diacritics/accents one. And later create your e-mail address: renee.noel@domain.com.
Support for languages: Czech, Dutch, English, French, German, Hungarian, Polish, Livonian, Latvian, Russian, Slovakian, Spanish. And all other which share the same diacritics/accents.
Detailed activities description:
  • Convert diacritics in provided string to non-diacritic string.
For input string: "á, â, ü, ñ, ç, ø, ß"
Output is: "a, a, u, n, c, o, ss"
  • Return false/true if provided string not/contains diacritics.
For input string: "á, â, ü, ñ, ç, ø, ß"
Output is: TRUE
but for input string: "a, c, b, x, ss, g, h"
output is: FALSE
  • Convert accented characters to non-accented.
For input string: "á, â, ü, ñ, ç, ø, ß"
Output is: "a, a, u, n, c, ø, ß"
As you can see only accented letters have been converted to non-accented ones. Other diacritics left untouched.
  • Return false/true if provided string not/contains accented letters.
For input string: "á, â, ü, ñ, ç, ø, ß"
Output is: TRUE,
but for input string: "a, b, u, n, c, ø, ß"
output is: FALSE, because "ø, ß" are diacritics, but not accented-letters.
