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 Google.de 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!
