combining character remover

world's simplest unicode tool

This browser-based utility removes combining characters from your Unicode text. All the symbols that you paste or enter in the input text area automatically get cleaned from the diacritical marks and are printed on the right side in the output area. It supports all Unicode symbols and it works with emoji characters. You can also control the mark deletion process in the options and leave one or more combining characters intact. Created by encoding gurus from team Browserling.

᠎᠎᠎          Tool Options

Ignore Diacritical Marks

Enter the code positions of
combining characters you
want to preserve.

Code Point Format

For example, enter the code point
"U+030c" to ignore a caron ◌̌ mark.
Enter "U+0335, U+0331" to ignore
a short stroke ◌̵ and a macron ◌̱.

What is a combining character remover?

This web application deletes combining marks from all Unicode glyphs. It finds all the tiny marks below, above, and in the middle of Unicode glyphs, deletes them, and returns clean Unicode symbols. For example, if you enter the word "càkḙ", then this tool will detect the diacritical marks "◌̀" and "◌̭" in it, remove them, and print a cleaned version of this word "cake". Similarly, if you enter a strikethrough word "p̶i̶e̶", you'll get a pure word "pie". Combining characters can be superimposed on the main character multiple times. Sometimes they overlap the character, sometimes they are added above or below preceding or following characters. For example, "c͚̳̓̋á͔̬̈́k̢̜̆ͨe͕̪᷆᷉" and "p̰̣̤̉̈︣í̷̹͔̀͘ͅe̗͎̦᷆᷀̋". Words that look very distorted are called "Zalgo words". This utility is able to resist Zalgo attacks and it removes any number of combining characters. If you want to leave some diacritical marks on the characters in the output, you can enter their code point values in the options. All combining characters except the specified ones will be deleted from the text. To ignore multiple diacritical marks, list their code positions in the option, separated by commas. Removing combining marks is the inverse operation of adding combining marks that we also have implemented.

Remove All Diacritical Marks

In this example, we clean a Unicode saying from all combining characters. In the input, each letter is complemented with the acute accent "◌́" diacritical mark above and the tilde "◌̰" symbol below. In the output, we get regular, readable letters without a single combining character.

Delete Foreign Accents

In this example, a Frenchman tried to write a phrase in German but forgot to remove his French accents. To help him clean up his text and get rid of the French diacritical marks but keep the German diacritical marks, we use the "Ignore Combining Characters" option. We enter the code point U+0308 there, which corresponds to the German umlaut "◌̈" . Thus, in the output, the umlaut is preserved, all French marks are removed, and we get a clean German quote by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.

Wér nìcht vôrwärts gêht, dêr kômmt zûrückè.
Wer nicht vorwärts geht, der kommt zurücke.

Neutralize Zalgo

In this example, Zalgo destroyed a quote by Walt Disney and made it distorted and unreadable. We neutralized Zalgo's impact by pouring some combining marks bleach on it. The bleach formula also allowed two diacritical characters to be output – the grave accent "◌̀" and symbol × "◌͓". To fine-tune the formula, we entered code positions of these marks in the options field, separated by commas, as follows: "U+0300, U+0353".
