I could not reproduce this on a standalone GlotPress install, so it appears to be specific to

That's because we're using latin1.

I figured as much :) Any way to convert to UTF-8?

Having different results for the same term depending on the case is very unintuitive.

There are currently no plans for changing the charset to UTF-8, closing as maybelater,

The "Case sensitive" checkbox should at least be disabled for non-Latin locales then, because it's currently misleading: the search is always case-sensitive for them, regardless of the checkbox.

I've also noticed that search on is case-sensitive for Cyrillic, even if the checkbox is left unchecked.
For example, "Главной" is not displayed when searching for "главной", and vice versa.

There are currently no plans for changing the charset to UTF-8, closing as maybelater,

Any chance to reconsider that?

The same issue happens in Swedish, if the search keyword contains the specific Swedish characters ( åäö vs. ÅÄÖ).
