SEO URLS with Greek Language

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I installed Ultimate_SEO_URLSv21d_UPDATED_1_2. I followed the instructions and everything went well. The only problem is that I also have Greek language installed. When I switch to Greek language and click on a product I get an url like this http://www.mydomain.com/catalog/ΓΓΓ...?Γ²-c-21.html

 

Is there something I could do to fix this?

 

Thank you in advance.

I would say you need to either get a transliteration module to convert your greek characters into ASCII-US, I don't think Ultimate SEO is aware of any "alphabet" beyond the ISO-latin family.

 

For instance, that would "translate" :

Γειά (hello)

to

"guelo" or "helo" (I don't know how is pronounced "Γ" in Greek).

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transliterati..._Latin_Alphabet

 

I know there is a good transliteration module available for Drupal 5.x, you might be able to adapt it for Ultimate SEO.

 

The other solution is to hack in the Ultimate SEO contrib and force it to output pure unicode urls (that is removing any extra conversion from UTF-8 to ASCII-US or ISO-Latin-1) but browsers support may vary and your hosting services need to be able to handle them, too.
