So we got this question about transcribing umlauts to non-umlauts and back.
this question in my opinion belongs to SO.
Because this is "simply": how can i encode a file with non-ASCII signs to ASCII and back, an get the same content again. Even though the question specifically asked for umlauts, this is not a german-only problem.
In French for example: ``´^
these can be put above everyaeiou`.
I then wanted to flag this question as OT to migrate it to SO, (if enough people had agreed), and found: when going through the close reasons, i can only chose this meta-site.
What happened to the box with the custom SE-Site?
