If you are uploading files with special characters, like the Danish Æ, Ø, and Å, accents, etc, you might want to convert those characters to something more machine friendly, as some setups although there are rare today, don’t handle these characters well. In any case, links to media, like a pdf file, looks awful if not converted. File Renaming on upload, takes care of this.
