Language specific accents preventing search results

I’m using an input for advanced search functionality in my application.
Everything works fine, apart from accents. I need to implement this search bar in a way that it ignores accents when searching the database. I’m running a brazilian startup, and the portuguese language has lots of accents, and sometimes users don’t remember to type them correctly.

eg. When user is searching for “deja vu” he should still find the database record “Déjà vu”


thank you very much for your help :slight_smile:
