In many European countries shops do use articles with a description including diacritics (üöäßéèáà...).

if the shop is international, many foreign customers not able to enter these characters, which prevent them to search efficiently...

there is however a very simple solution:

no programme is required: just edit advanced_search.php and replace

Search In Article Descriptions
by
Search In Articla Descriptions
no diacritics? (üöäßéèáà...) use _ instead!

(In MySQL _ is the joker for exactly one character. So your customers will be told to search using jokers)
