How to Decode Foreign Language URL Slugs

Recommended Posts

Hi,

How to create URL Slugs - at the end of a root domain - in foreign languages including: Russian, Chinese and Hebrew, Arabic etc.

Let's start with this word in hebrew מדעThere's an assortment of free URL decode tools available

It's encoded %D7%9E%D7%93%D7%A2, but SQS Page URL Slug system changes it into d79ed793d7a2 instantly

SQS does not seem support the percentage sign in URL Slugs and does change sentence case of URL slugs as well.

How to create specific URL Slugs that would display in foreign languages (characters outside of the latin alphabet)? How to achieve something similar to the below results?

P.S. My site is in five different European languages; ranked in top 10 in many local versions of Google across several keywords. I've used SQS since 2014; read hundreds of forum requests for bilingual website tools and ended of developing it on my own. Now want to scale the business in markets beyond the latin alphabet.

Below is examples of good URL's Decoded in Foreign Language
