I need to replace non-English characters in file names with English equivalents. Is it possible to use File Locator Pro to show all files having characters not in English?

For example, do not display:

text.txt

Do Display:

NeturÄ—jom Dainos

Is this possible? If it can be done, I do not see a way to do it.

You could run a search to find all non latin characters in file names using a regular expression like this:

File name: [^0-9a-z. _#-]

This should find anything that is not in the group:

0-9
a-z

Or other possible file name characters like:

.    [dot]
     [space]
_    [underscore]
#    [hash]
-    [dash]

For example:
