Ticket #8690 (closed Feature Request: fixed+released)
Any non-latin script should have Short Names available by default
|Reported by:||limi||Owned by:|
Right now, the Short Name field is hidden unless you manually enable it. This works great as long as you are in a latin-based language where the normalizer works, but creates absolutely useless URLs for Japanese, Chinese, Arabic, Hebrew,Korean, etc.
If we can't figure out a better way to handle normalization for these languages for 4.0, I propose that we enable the Short Name field for all non-latin-based languages by default. In other words, if you have your site language set to Japanese, you have the Short Name field on all content.
