SMS diacritical marks

MJ

Hi, at first thank you for great service.

I have a small problem: I'm from Czech Republic, so I write my tasks in Czech language, which uses letters with diacritical marks - e.g. "příliš žluťoučký kůň úpěl ďábelské ódy".
When I set a mobile reminder, I receive SMS with broken encoding - e.g. "p>Äli- 9lu'ouök) k/* @p#l ._belsk? ;dy". It's a little annoying, because sometimes I don't recognize the task.

My tip for solution: Before sending an SMS Todoist should trim all diacritical marks. In other words - convert string to ASCII. E.g. "prilis zlutoucky kun upel dabelske ody". If this happens, I will always recognize the task and Todoist reminder will do the trick.

Hi again Maritn

We should now remove diacritical (or try to remove them).

Please test it out and let us know if everything works as it should.

Best regards,
Amir
