[Japanese] Handling Variant Characters in Algolia Search

Hi Algolia Community,

I’m improving our search to handle variants like “山崎” and “山﨑”. Searches for one don’t find the other, affecting user experience. Despite adding these as synonyms in Algolia, it didn’t solve the issue.

Could you recommend strategies or configurations for Algolia to manage such variants, ensuring searches return all relevant results, no matter the variant?

Thanks!

Any help would be appreciated!
