3346377 - Impossible to search using local spelling of location (city) - Recruiting Marketing


When searching jobs by location, the system does not recognize the name of the location in different local languages.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the career site
  2. Choose Location search in Search bar
  3. Put "Bruxelles" or "Neumünster" for instance as location search criteria ⇾ no results will match
  4. Put "Brussel" or "Neumuenster" as location search criteria ⇾ several search results will show


With the location object, it is not possible to have one city in different language versions (spellings) so that it can be searchable on the career site. 


It might be achieved by a custom field, but in that case you would not be able to use the multi-location feature.

Kindly note that the enhancement request has been already raised and acknowledged, but no information about when it might be available has been provided. You can find details here: [CSB] - Improvement city name search on RMK site.
