Can I remove or replace accented characters from my Shopify data with more "normal" characters when exporting?

Yes, you can!

We've gotten this request from some of our customers whose suppliers' systems don't support accented/non-ASCII characters. Their suppliers requested to send them the CSV files with the accented character replaced with the closest Latin equivalent (e.g. á -> a).

We've added a function called normalize_text() to handle this in EZ Exporter which can be used in a Calculated Field.

This function will automatically convert special accented characters such as Á, Ç, and ô to their closest ASCII equivalent.

For example, if the customer's name is Jôam Doê, you can use a formula like this:

normalize_text({{ }})

In the exported CSV file, the text will be converted to Joam Doe (the special accented characters are replaced with Latin characters).
