Hi Sophie

Would it not be better to arrange with the Unicode Consortium to have this done in conjunction with them? They are trying more and more to coordinate with companies like Microsoft to align data and if we do this "just by ourselves" I fear there will be a lot of extra work down stream. We had this recently with all the emoji and country names between CLDR and Microsoft.

It might also be worth checking where Wikipedia ( for example) get their names from?

Either way, I think for this feature to be useful the search needs to search at the same time for the localized name and the official unicode name, because otherwise if I search (for example) for "latin small character" and some have been localized to "Lateinischer Kleinbuchstabe" and some not, I get a strange list of results.

Plus of course there's my old pipe-dream of being able to assing a keyboard shortcut to the character (like you can in Word) once you found it, using the character map to search for chars is very time consuming if you have to do it a lot. It keeps popping up in enhancement bugs too now and then

Hi all,

Wanted your opinion on this patch:

Soon it will be possible to search for unicode names, however this is
only possible in English. I don't think that maps exist in other
language (well it exists in French but it's the only language I'm aware of).
Translating all this is not possible. Would it be ok for you to
implement this feature anyway? I'm balanced because this is a very
useful feature, but on the other hand it won't be for some users.
