Using searchwp_lenient_accents you can tell SearchWP to not apply exact-match logic to words containing accented characters. If SearchWP’s implementation of converting accented terms to their non-accented counterpart is not performing correctly, you can use this hook to override SearchWP’s replacement and provide your own.

Example: To override SearchWP’s accent removal, add something like the following to your theme’s functions.php:

function my_searchwp_leinent_accent_result( $string, $original_string ) {
if ( 'mytést' == $original_string ) {
$string = 'mytest';
return $string;
add_filter( 'searchwp_leinent_accent_result', 'my_searchwp_leinent_accent_result', 10, 2 );
