Uploading Assets with Thai filenames

When uploading Assets with Thai Character file names, like อำ.mp3 I get links that look like this %E0%B8%AD%E0%B8%B3.mp3

Why? and when will glitch support other languages in URLs?

That’s actually pretty normal.
For example, each %XX is a letter.
When a file is imported, their name gets converted to that, and back.
However, it can’t hold other letters than the default english ones, so it won’t translate it back properly

Cool thanks it actually works with putting in the foreign letters in the link

This is known as escaping I believe. Spaces are replaced with %20, alternatively to look better they can also be replaced with + which is what search engines also use

sorry for bumping this I confused September 27th with October 27th
