how can I return both accented and non-accented letters from a non-accented search string (and vice versa) RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi there,

    I've just read a few things about this but fail to understand.

    Is there a simple way for me to query my database (it's a French/English dictionary)

    and have search term: "mange" return both "mange" and "mangé"

    there are many more examples with other accents so I was hoping for a very simple piece of code to say "look let's just ignore accents here and return everything"

    is there such a thing as Accent Sensitivity ON/OFF ???

    the dictionary is in isolated storage and I'm using a simple LINQ query with Contains(searchterm)

    thanks for your help!
