Non-English characters in URLs

A member in our community has issued a problem regarding Non-English characters in URLs.

Is there a way to change non-english characters like ü,ç,ş,ö,ğ to u,c,s,o,ğ ?

Otherwise the links get messy and doesn't look good.

Maybe via .htaccess ?

Thanks.

Normally it shows it as it is in the threat title. Example:

/threads/foruma-yeni-konu-nasıl-açarım.5868/

when I copy - past this link it looks like this:

/threads/foruma-yeni-konu-nas%C4%B1l-a%C3%A7ar%C4%B1m.5868/

Google indexes this as it is but it would be nice if someone could provide a code which we could use with htaccess to transform non english characters to english ones.

I'd have this thread link rather look like this: /threads/foruma-yeni-konu-nasil-acarim.5868/
