Replacing Spanish Characters With The English Equivalent

Jul 22, 2010

Using 2005/ I thought I had the issue solved: I have some strings with spanish characters such as "ñ" and I need to replace characters with their non-spanish equivalent, ex: the example I just mentioned would be changed to "n".


when I put a breakpoint I see that usually my code replaces the characters the way that I want and all is good but some replacements are not working well and looking at my breakpoint it appears that there are non-readable characters that are included with the spanish characters and it seems that I need to do some kind of normalization on the string but not sure what to do. I have a text "caroliné" that i processing and in the code above it appears to replace the last char with an "e" but when I return the value from the function I am able to see some non readable characters (appearing on my watchlist as a small square) and the resulting string is actually "carolina" which is confusing.

Reading & Replacing Spanish Characters

Jul 16, 2010


I am reading names from a file, some of them have special spanish characters like this: ñ

My end goal is to replace the special characters, however when I read the names into a string and then put a breakpoint and run my program in debug to see what I'm reading in my watch window shows a square in place of the special characters as if it's having problems reading the special characters.

EX:Muñoz from the file

is displayed

Mu�oz in my string

what I need to do so that my code and correctly read the special characters?

Web Forms :: DropDownList Switches From Spanish Into English?

Jul 15, 2010

Why would a DropDownList switch from Spanish into English when one selects a new item in it? And how does one prevent that from happening?


When you first come to this page after having chosen Spanish as your language, the dropdown is populated with the ListItems texts displaying -- as expected -- in Spanish. But when you go to select another item from the dropdown, all the items come back in English!

When you examine the dropdown before the AutoPostBack (both server-side and in FireBug), each ListItem is properly set, as in

Value="Some English" Text="Some Español"
whereas **after** the PostBack, it looks like
Value="Some English" Text="The same English"

Why is this happening, and what can I do to get it to keep the Spanish one sees before any PostBacks?


1. The routine pointed to in `OnSelectedIndexChanged` is currently commented out, so the problem is not there.

2. I added `EnableViewState="true"` to the DropDownList, but that didn't make any difference, so I removed it.

3. As suggested below by Ichiban, I moved setting the `Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture` from `Page_Load` to `Page_Init()`, but that too didn't make any difference.

Localization :: DateTime Format, Differences Between Spanish An English?

May 21, 2010

I'm suffering a well known problem with globalization, but, I tried to find the answer in the forum and got nothing. My computer has regionalization or globalization from Colombia, as i live there. I made my site and when I published I started to get errors on dates. This errors happen because in Spanish the date format is 'dd/MM/yyyy' being dd:day, MM:month and yyyy:year. In English the date format is 'MM/dd/yyyy'.There is any form or way to correct this in the entire site?? Maybe something in the web.config file?

Web Forms :: Displaying Spanish Characters From Code-Behind?

Oct 21, 2010

I have a page whose content I want to deliver dynamically based on a setting from a database... that setting being "Language."

The content is minimal, so what I'd like to do is just say:

if (Setting == ES)
Label.Text = [Spanish Text]
Label.Text = [English Text]

but I can't figure out how to make the page show the Spanish accented characters properly.

AJAX :: Using Editor To Support Spanish Characters?

Aug 23, 2010

I recently switched from freetextbox to the built in Ajax editor because of issues ftb had with update panels. The Ajax editor works great except for one problem, it messes up my spanish characters. For instance, it will replace ñ with ? and post the to my database. Is there anyway to not make it do this and leave it as the actual ñ ? if the same characters is placed in a standard textbox it will submit with no problem.

SQL Server :: Adding A Bunch Of New Records To The English Table / Repeating The Data Entry Into The Spanish Table

Oct 29, 2010

I have two tables for storing language translations - tblEN and tblES. They have the same structure which is nvcEnglish and nvcLocal - both nVarChar fields.

In nvcLocal of the Spanish table, I enter the Spanish translations of words and phrases used within my app. Problem is, when I add a bunch of new records to the English table I also have to go in and repeat the data entry into the Spanish table. I am wondering if there is a way to import the newly added records into the Spanish table using Transact SQL?The plain language query would be something like:

If the data in tblEN.nvcEnglish does not exist in tblES.nvcEnglish then insert a new row into tblES with the values from tblEN
