Remove accents/diacritics in a string in JavaScript

How do I remove accentuated characters from a string? Especially in IE6, I had something like this:

accentsTidy = function(s){
    var r=s.toLowerCase();
    r = r.replace(new RegExp(/\s/g),"");
    r = r.replace(new RegExp(/[àáâãäå]/g),"a");
    r = r.replace(new RegExp(/æ/g),"ae");
    r = r.replace(new RegExp(/ç/g),"c");
    r = r.replace(new RegExp(/[èéêë]/g),"e");
    r = r.replace(new RegExp(/[ìíîï]/g),"i");
    r = r.replace(new RegExp(/ñ/g),"n");                
    r = r.replace(new RegExp(/[òóôõö]/g),"o");
    r = r.replace(new RegExp(/œ/g),"oe");
    r = r.replace(new RegExp(/[ùúûü]/g),"u");
    r = r.replace(new RegExp(/[ýÿ]/g),"y");
    r = r.replace(new RegExp(/\W/g),"");
    return r;
};

but IE6 bugs me, seems it doesn't like my regular expression.

Answer

With ES2015/ES6 String.Prototype.Normalize(),

const str = "Crème Brulée"
str.normalize("NFD").replace(/[\u0300-\u036f]/g, "")
> "Creme Brulee"

Two things are happening here:

  1. normalize()ing to NFD Unicode normal form decomposes combined graphemes into the combination of simple ones. The è of Crème ends up expressed as e + ?.
  2. Using a regex character class to match the U+0300 ? U+036F range, it is now trivial to globally get rid of the diacritics, which the Unicode standard conveniently groups as the Combining Diacritical Marks Unicode block.

See comment for performance testing.

Alternatively, if you just want sorting

Intl.Collator has sufficient support ~85% right now, a polyfill is also available here but I haven't tested it.

const c = new Intl.Collator();
["creme brulee", "crème brulée", "crame brulai", "crome brouillé",
"creme brulay", "creme brulfé", "creme bruléa"].sort(c.compare)
["crame brulai", "creme brulay", "creme bruléa", "creme brulee",
"crème brulée", "creme brulfé", "crome brouillé"]


["creme brulee", "crème brulée", "crame brulai", "crome brouillé"].sort((a,b) => a>b)
["crame brulai", "creme brulee", "crome brouillé", "crème brulée"]
Answer

I slightly modified khel version for one reason: Every regexp parse/replace will cost O(n) operations, where n is number of characters in target text. But, regexp is not exactly what we need. So:

Answer

The format for new RegExp is

RegExp(something, 'modifiers');

So you would want

accentsTidy = function(s){
                        var r=s.toLowerCase();
                        r = r.replace(new RegExp("\\s", 'g'),"");
                        r = r.replace(new RegExp("[àáâãäå]", 'g'),"a");
                        r = r.replace(new RegExp("æ", 'g'),"ae");
                        r = r.replace(new RegExp("ç", 'g'),"c");
                        r = r.replace(new RegExp("[èéêë]", 'g'),"e");
                        r = r.replace(new RegExp("[ìíîï]", 'g'),"i");
                        r = r.replace(new RegExp("ñ", 'g'),"n");                            
                        r = r.replace(new RegExp("[òóôõö]", 'g'),"o");
                        r = r.replace(new RegExp("œ", 'g'),"oe");
                        r = r.replace(new RegExp("[ùúûü]", 'g'),"u");
                        r = r.replace(new RegExp("[ýÿ]", 'g'),"y");
                        r = r.replace(new RegExp("\\W", 'g'),"");
                        return r;
                };
Answer

You can use the _.deburr method from the Lodash library.

It's available as a stand-alone NPM package lodash.deburr, or as part of the lodash package.

let myStringWithAccent = 'Mon café est plein de caféïne';
let myStringWithoutAccent = deburr(myStringWithAccent);

The result will be : "Mon cafe est plein de cafeine"

Shortened code based on the excellent solution by Ian Elliott:

Edit: Corrected non-working code

Answer

One solution that seems to be way faster by the given test : http://jsperf.com/diacritics/9

function removeDiacritics(str) {
   return str.replace(/[^A-Za-z0-9\s]+/g, function(a){
      return diacriticsMap[a] || a; 
   });
}
removeDiacritics(teste);

Working example: http://jsbin.com/sovorute/1/edit

Reasoning: One reason this is much faster is because we only iterate through the special characters, picked by the negated regex pattern. The fastest of the tests (String Iteration without in) iterates 1001 on the given text, which means every character. This one iterates only 35 times and outputs the same result. Keep in mind that this will only replace what is indicated in the map.

Classic article on the subject: http://alistapart.com/article/accent-folding-for-auto-complete

Credit: http://semplicewebsites.com/removing-accents-javascript , also provides a nice character map.

Answer

In NPM there is a package for this: latinize

It's a very good package to solve this issue.

Answer

A simpler way to replace the diacriticals.

function replaceDiacritics(str){

  var diacritics = [
    {char: 'A', base: /[\300-\306]/g},
    {char: 'a', base: /[\340-\346]/g},
    {char: 'E', base: /[\310-\313]/g},
    {char: 'e', base: /[\350-\353]/g},
    {char: 'I', base: /[\314-\317]/g},
    {char: 'i', base: /[\354-\357]/g},
    {char: 'O', base: /[\322-\330]/g},
    {char: 'o', base: /[\362-\370]/g},
    {char: 'U', base: /[\331-\334]/g},
    {char: 'u', base: /[\371-\374]/g},
    {char: 'N', base: /[\321]/g},
    {char: 'n', base: /[\361]/g},
    {char: 'C', base: /[\307]/g},
    {char: 'c', base: /[\347]/g}
  ]

  diacritics.forEach(function(letter){
    str = str.replace(letter.base, letter.char);
  });

  return str;
};
Answer

There's a lot out there, but I think this one is simple and good enough:

 function remove_accents(strAccents) {
    var strAccents = strAccents.split('');
    var strAccentsOut = new Array();
    var strAccentsLen = strAccents.length;
    var accents =    "ÀÁÂÃÄÅàáâãäåÒÓÔÕÕÖØòóôõöøÈÉÊËèéêëðÇçÐÌÍÎÏìíîïÙÚÛÜùúûüÑñŠšŸÿýŽž";
    var accentsOut = "AAAAAAaaaaaaOOOOOOOooooooEEEEeeeeeCcDIIIIiiiiUUUUuuuuNnSsYyyZz";
    for (var y = 0; y < strAccentsLen; y++) {
        if (accents.indexOf(strAccents[y]) != -1) {
            strAccentsOut[y] = accentsOut.substr(accents.indexOf(strAccents[y]), 1);
        } else
            strAccentsOut[y] = strAccents[y];
    }
    strAccentsOut = strAccentsOut.join('');

    return strAccentsOut;
}

If you also want to remove special characters and transform spaces and hyphens in underscores, do this:

string = remove_accents(string);
string = string.replace(/[^a-z0-9\s]/gi, '').replace(/[-\s]/g, '_');

I have forked billy's code http://jsfiddle.net/billybraga/UHmnf/ (from his post) into this: http://jsfiddle.net/infralabs/dJX58/

I corrected transcription of ? and ß characters and also added coversion of these ones: Þþ, Ðð, ??, ??, Œœ.

function removeDicretics(str) {
    return str.replace(/[^\u0000-\u007E]/g, function (weirdo) {
        return diacriticsMap[weirdo] || weirdo;
    });

Here's a very simple solution without too much code using a very simple map of diacritics that includes some or all that map to ascii equivalents containing more than one character, i.e. Æ => AE, ? => ffi, etc... Also included some very basic functional tests

Answer

thanks to all
I use this version and say why (because I misses those explanations at the begining, so I try to help the next reader if he is as dull as me ...)

Remark : I wanted an efficient solution, so :

  • only one regexp compilation (if needed)
  • only one string scan for each string
  • an efficient way to find the translated characters etc ...

My version is :
(there is no new technical trick inside it, only some selected ones + explanations why)

makeSortString = (function() {
    var translate_re = /[¹²³áàâãäåaaaÀÁÂÃÄÅAAAÆccç©CCÇÐÐèéê?ëeeeeeÈÊË?EEEEE€gGiìíîïìiiiÌÍÎÏ?ÌIIIlLnnñNNÑòóôõöoooøÒÓÔÕÖOOOØŒr®Ršs?ߊS?ùúûüuuuuÙÚÛÜUUUUýÿÝŸžzzŽZZ]/g;
    var translate = {
"¹":"1","²":"2","³":"3","á":"a","à":"a","â":"a","ã":"a","ä":"a","å":"a","a":"a","a":"a","a":"a","À":"a","Á":"a","Â":"a","Ã":"a","Ä":"a","Å":"a","A":"a","A":"a",
"A":"a","Æ":"a","c":"c","c":"c","ç":"c","©":"c","C":"c","C":"c","Ç":"c","Ð":"d","Ð":"d","è":"e","é":"e","ê":"e","?":"e","ë":"e","e":"e","e":"e","e":"e","e":"e",
"e":"e","È":"e","Ê":"e","Ë":"e","?":"e","E":"e","E":"e","E":"e","E":"e","E":"e","€":"e","g":"g","G":"g","i":"i","ì":"i","í":"i","î":"i","ï":"i","ì":"i","i":"i",
"i":"i","i":"i","Ì":"i","Í":"i","Î":"i","Ï":"i","?":"i","Ì":"i","I":"i","I":"i","I":"i","l":"l","L":"l","n":"n","n":"n","ñ":"n","N":"n","N":"n","Ñ":"n","ò":"o",
"ó":"o","ô":"o","õ":"o","ö":"o","o":"o","o":"o","o":"o","ø":"o","Ò":"o","Ó":"o","Ô":"o","Õ":"o","Ö":"o","O":"o","O":"o","O":"o","Ø":"o","Œ":"o","r":"r","®":"r",

"U":"u","U":"u","U":"u","U":"u","ý":"y","ÿ":"y","Ý":"y","Ÿ":"y","ž":"z","z":"z","z":"z","Ž":"z","Z":"z","Z":"z"
    };
    return function(s) {
        return(s.replace(translate_re, function(match){return translate[match];}) );
    }
})();

and I use it this way :

var without_accents = makeSortString("wïthêüÄTrèsBïgüeAk100t");
// I let you guess the result,
// no I was kidding you : I give you the result : witheuatresbigueak100t

Comments :

  • Tthe instruction inside it is done once (after, makeSortString != undefined)
  • function(){...} is stored once in makeSortString, so the "big" translate_re and translate objects are stored once
  • When you call makeSortString('something') it call directly the inside function which calls only s.replace(...) : it is efficient
  • s.replace uses regexp (the special syntax of var translate_re= .... is in fact equivalent to var translate_re = new RegExp("[¹....Z]","g"); but the compilation of the regexp is done once for all, and the scan of the s String is done one for a call of the function (not for every character as it would be in a loop)
  • For each character found s.replace calls function(match) where parameter match contains the character found, and it call the corresponding translated character (translate[match])
  • Translate[match] is probably efficient too as the javascript translate object is probably implemented by javascript with a hashtab or something equivalent and allow the program to find the translated character almost directly and not for instance through a loop on a array of all characters to find the right one (which would be awfully unefficient).
Answer

I provided this answer for a similar question. It is based on quick table-lookup replacement for selected chars (latin 1+2), one for one (not possible to change German ü to "ue"), but works well for basic "normalization" to 7-bit ASCII.

TAB_00C0 = "AAAAAAACEEEEIIII" +
    "DNOOOOO*OUUUUYIs" +
    "aaaaaaaceeeeiiii" +
    "?nooooo/ouuuuy?y" +
    "AaAaAaCcCcCcCcDd" +
    "DdEeEeEeEeEeGgGg" +
    "GgGgHhHhIiIiIiIi" +
    "IiJjJjKkkLlLlLlL" +
    "lLlNnNnNnnNnOoOo" +
    "OoOoRrRrRrSsSsSs" +
    "SsTtTtTtUuUuUuUu" +
    "UuUuWwYyYZzZzZzF";

function stripDiacritics(source) {
    var result = source.split('');
    for (var i = 0; i < result.length; i++) {
        var c = source.charCodeAt(i);
        if (c >= 0x00c0 && c <= 0x017f) {
            result[i] = String.fromCharCode(TAB_00C0.charCodeAt(c - 0x00c0));
        } else if (c > 127) {
            result[i] = '?';
        }
    }
    return result.join('');
}

stripDiacritics("Šupa, ?o? ?š??žýæøå?ð")

Any other characters are converted to ?, that is result is definitely 7-bit ASCII. No regex, no magic, simple char array work.

Answer

I used string.js's latinise() method, which lets you do it like this:

var output = S(input).latinise().toString();
Answer

Assuming you know what you're doing, I suspect IE6 is not interpreting the file's encoding correctly, and hence not recognising the non-ASCII characters in the file:

  • Make sure the file is saved as UTF-8 (say)
  • Use Fiddler or some other tool to check that the web server is sending the correct Content-Encoding HTTP header.

(It "smells" wrong though, I'd look into doing the sorting, say on the server using something that's locale-aware... but anyway...)

Answer

Pass a user defined function to the Array.sort() method, and in this user defined function use String.localeCompare()

function myCompareFunction(a, b) {
  return a.localeCompare(b);
}

var values = ["pêches", "épinards", "tomates", "fraises"];

// WRONG: ["fraises", "pêches", "tomates", "épinards"]
values.sort();

 // **GOOD**: ["épinards", "fraises", "pêches", "tomates"]
values.sort(myCompareFunction);
Answer

I know it is "cheating" to do this on the server side, but last week I had a similar task in Javascript and I've introduced a simple java servlet and removed the accents in Java. It was really fast :)

Answer

I found all these a little clumsy and I'm not too expert on regular expressions, so here's a simpler version. It would be quite easy to translate it to your favourite server-side language, assuming that the string already in Unicode:

// String containing replacement characters for stripping accents 
var stripstring = 
    'AAAAAAACEEEEIIII'+
    'DNOOOOO.OUUUUY..'+
    'aaaaaaaceeeeiiii'+
    'dnooooo.ouuuuy.y'+
    'AaAaAaCcCcCcCcDd'+
    'DdEeEeEeEeEeGgGg'+
    'GgGgHhHhIiIiIiIi'+
    'IiIiJjKkkLlLlLlL'+
    'lJlNnNnNnnNnOoOo'+
    'OoOoRrRrRrSsSsSs'+
    'SsTtTtTtUuUuUuUu'+
    'UuUuWwYyYZzZzZz.';

function stripaccents(str){
    var answer='';
    for(var i=0;i<str.length;i++){
        var ch=str[i];
        var chindex=ch.charCodeAt(0)-192;   // Index of character code in the strip string
        if(chindex>=0 && chindex<stripstring.length){
            // Character is within our table, so we can strip the accent...
            var outch=stripstring.charAt(chindex);
            // ...unless it was shown as a '.'
            if(outch!='.')ch=outch;
        }
        answer+=ch;
    }
    return answer;
}
Answer

You can create regex's in multiple ways. Using the new RegExp-constructor:

var re = new RegExp("[a-z]", "ig") //(string pattern, string modifiers)

Or using the regex literal notation:

var re = /[a-z]/ig; // /pattern/modifiers

You have mixed the two.

If you are open to using a library, you can use String.js latinize: http://stringjs.com/#methods/latinise

My take, for removing all accents and special characters. I've mixed Lewis Diamond's elegant accent removal method with the community wiki's fast character replace for the rest of the characters. The result is an Ascii string.

function convertToAscii(string) {
    const unicodeToAsciiMap = {'?':'A','Æ':'AE','?':'AV','?':'B','?':'B','?':'B','?':'C','?':'C','?':'D','?':'D','?':'D','?':'D','?':'D','?':'DZ','?':'E','?':'ET','?':'F','?':'G','?':'G','?':'H','?':'H','?':'I','?':'D','?':'F','?':'G','?':'R','?':'S','?':'T','?':'IS','?':'J','?':'K','?':'K','?':'K','?':'K','?':'K','?':'L','?':'L','?':'L','?':'L','?':'L','?':'L','?':'L','?':'M','?':'N','?':'N','?':'N','?':'O','?':'O','?':'O','Ø':'O','?':'OI','?':'E','?':'O','?':'OU','?':'P','?':'P','?':'P','?':'P','?':'P','?':'Q','?':'Q','?':'R','?':'R','?':'C','?':'E','?':'T','?':'T','?':'T','?':'T','?':'A','?':'L','?':'M','?':'V','?':'V','?':'V','?':'W','?':'Y','?':'Y','?':'Y','?':'Z','?':'Z','?':'Z','Œ':'OE','?':'A','?':'AE','?':'B','?':'B','?':'C','?':'D','?':'E','?':'F','?':'G','?':'G','?':'H','?':'I','?':'R','?':'J','?':'K','?':'L','?':'L','?':'M','?':'N','?':'O','?':'OE','?':'O','?':'OU','?':'P','?':'R','?':'N','?':'R','?':'S','?':'T','?':'E','?':'R','?':'U','?':'V','?':'W','?':'Y','?':'Z','?':'a','?':'a','?':'a','æ':'ae','?':'av','?':'b','?':'b','?':'b','?':'b','?':'b','?':'o','?':'c','?':'c','?':'c','?':'d','?':'d','?':'d','?':'d','?':'d','?':'d','?':'d','?':'d','?':'i','?':'j','?':'j','?':'j','?':'dz','?':'e','?':'e','?':'e','?':'et','ƒ':'f','?':'f','?':'f','?':'g','?':'g','?':'g','?':'h','?':'h','?':'h','?':'hv','?':'i','?':'i','?':'d','?':'f','?':'g','?':'r','?':'s','?':'t','?':'is','?':'j','?':'j','?':'k','?':'k','?':'k','?':'k','?':'k','?':'k','?':'l','?':'l','?':'l','?':'l','?':'l','?':'l','?':'l','?':'l','?':'l','?':'l','?':'s','?':'s','?':'s','?':'m','?':'m','?':'m','?':'n','?':'n','?':'n','?':'n','?':'n','?':'n','?':'o','?':'o','?':'o','ø':'o','?':'oi','?':'e','?':'e','?':'o','?':'o','?':'ou','?':'p','?':'p','?':'p','?':'p','?':'p','?':'p','?':'p','?':'q','?':'q','?':'q','?':'q','?':'r','?':'r','?':'r','?':'r','?':'r','?':'r','?':'r','?':'c','?':'c','?':'e','?':'r','?':'s','?':'s','?':'s','?':'s','?':'g','?':'o','?':'o','?':'u','?':'t','?':'t','?':'t','?':'t','?':'t','?':'t','?':'t','?':'th','?':'a','?':'ae','?':'e','?':'g','?':'h','?':'h','?':'h','?':'i','?':'k','?':'l','?':'m','?':'m','?':'oe','?':'r','?':'r','?':'r','?':'r','?':'t','?':'v','?':'w','?':'y','?':'u','?':'ue','?':'um','?':'v','?':'v','?':'v','?':'v','?':'v','?':'w','?':'x','?':'y','?':'y','?':'y','?':'z','?':'z','?':'z','?':'z','?':'z','?':'z','?':'z','?':'z','œ':'oe','?':'x'};

Answer

All the above isn't working with decomposed character as used on Mac OS. In order to remove diacritics in that case it is more simple :

r = r.replace(new RegExp(/[\u0300-\u036f]/g),"")

see comment from Olivier Miakinen on : https://groups.google.com/d/msg/fr.comp.lang.regexp/6IGJTbedGTM/G0sB2kAsR34J (posted in french)

Answer

If you're also interesting in converting Greek characters to Latin, I've included the Greek alhpabet along with some digraphs; it can also be used for a form of combined orthographic and phonetic Greeklish.

Also, this version accepts optional options with:

  • override Object {replace:string -> search:regex, ...}
    It overrides the default replacements
  • ignore Array<string | regex> | string
    Ignores the list items which can be strings or regular expressions
