Hello, I hope this is in the right forum.

I would like to know if it’s possible to make searching easier for people using english keyboards wanting to search a Vietnamese store. Here’s an example.

A product is titled: “ĐỌC KỸ TRUYỆN KIỀU”

If I use the query “TRUYEN” it will find the product even though I put a regular “E” instead of “Ệ”.

However, it doesn’t work when I try “DOC” instead of “ĐỌC”. It doesn’t find anything.

Is it possible to make the second part work just like it worked with using “E” instead of “Ệ”?

Let me know if this needs more clarification.

@coeus: Maybe you can try using search synonyms:
Go to Admin > Catalog > Search . Add new search. Enter in the form and save:

Search Query: DOC
Synonim For: ĐỌC

See if that works for you

Wow, thanks Moshe, I didn’t even know Magento had such a feature. That’s awesome.

I was wondering, though, how it was possible that a search for “E” finds “Ệ”. Something in the current system already does this with Ệ . Does this have something to do with UTF-8? I’m a language newb.

Another method it to create some attributes that are searchable but not visible in catalog under Front end Properties of the attribute.

Thanks
