Formatting of Query Suggestions not displayed on Answers frontend

Hi @Kristy_Huang and @Austin_DaCunha ,

I just noticed a related issue that might require a deeper look:

It appears that query suggestions are being stripped of Umlaut-type characters (e.g. “ä” becomes “a”). This is problematic for languages like German where “ä” and “a” are distinct letters and should not be normalized.

Here’s how handles these cases:

Here is a screenshot of my Answers config preview:

Is there a way to make changes to how query suggestions are normalized? Thank you so much!
