Question by Lautaro Bonetto, Sep 26, 2014 10:05 AM

How do I can index special characters from a Sitecore field?


I have a Coveo Index server indexing a Sitecore 6.6 project. This Sitecore website has product items with special characters on the title of them. I'm trying to index this titles on the right way, but I can't. Please, could someone help me with this? Is there some configurations that I'm missing?


  • Sitecore title value: ItemA 1™ BigOne
  • Coveo value for this field: ItemA 1â„¢ BigOne

Thanks, Lautaro

Hi Lautaro,

It's a kinda weird behavior. If you go in Sitecore and take a look at what is the Raw Value of the title, what do you see? It seems like the encoding is not the same…

To fix it, you could use a Post-Conversion script to encode the titles correctly. See here :

Yep. This is weird, because the raw value has this text "Mobil 1™". Looks like the special characters are still there too. I'm going to take a look at the post-conversion script.
