how to solved this?


1 Answer 1


The default search is MySQL-based. So can be impacted by DB character set options.

However is it possible you can look in the database for semiautomático value?

There is a possibility the accent character has been saved as an HTML entity which is why you are not getting a match.

In which case you may have to look at this feature https://docs.magento.com/m2/ce/user_guide/marketing/search-synonyms.html
