Answers to Questions (FAQ)

What are diacritics? (Definition)

A diacritic is a graphic element added to a written letter, giving it a variation, usually in its pronunciation or basically to differentiate words.

Example: n, and ñ have a different pronunciation in Spanish

Example: la and have two different meaning in French (despite an identical pronunciation)

What are the diacritics (that can be deleted)?

Here is a partial list of types of accents and diacritics: acute accent ´, grave accent`, caron ˇ, circumflex/perispomene ˆ, umlaut ¨, point ·, macron ¯, round ˚ or ˳, etc.

dCode is able to identify these elements and remove them. dCode remove accents or other diacritics such as tilde or cedilla and all special characters (non-ASCII, to avoid encoding problems).

Example: dèçodé will be transformed into decode

How to remove accents in Excel?

Function noAccent(str As String) As String Dim withAccent As String, withoutAccent As String, i As Long withAccent = "äâàéèêëïîìöôòüûù" withoutAccent = "aaaeeeeiiiooouuu" For i = 1 To Len(withAccent) str = Replace(str, Mid(withAccent, i, 1), Mid(withoutAccent, i, 1)) Next i noAccent = str End Function

What is the diacritics list in Unicode?
