Try this:

Code: [Select]
function RemoveDiacritics(S :utf8string):utf8string;
// It should work for several languages
// Portuguese, Spanish and Italian, maybe for French, German and more
  AccentedChars :array[0..53] of utf8string = ('á','à','ã','â','ä','é','è','ê','ë','í','ì','ï','î','ó','ò','õ','ô','ö','ø','ú','ù','ü','û','ç','ñ','ÿ','ý',
  NormalChars   :array[0..53] of utf8string = ('a','a','a','a','a','e','e','e','e','i','i','i','i','o','o','o','o','oe','o','u','u','u','u','c','n','y','y',
  i, j :integer;
  Result := S;
  for i := 0 to High(AccentedChars) do
    Result := StringReplace(Result, AccentedChars[i], NormalChars[i], [rfReplaceAll]);

Hello. This code doesn't work . I have used a project from this message,15576.msg83821.html#msg83821

I have attached images showing how arrays look like in memory. I think the problem is that the characters  with diacritics in AccentedChars are written as 4 bytes. While the string from the edit contains 2 bytes.

Suggestion from here  helps, making first array consisting of 2-byte chars (each array element occupies  16 bytes ).
