Slack supports searching messages and files in many languages, including fuzzy search. For example, searching for a word like "slack" in English shows related terms such as "slacking" or "slacked", and this is also supported in other languages.
Channel names and usernames
Channel names can be in any language and up to 21 characters in length. They may include lowercase letters, non-Latin characters, numbers, and hyphens (-).
Usernames are limited to letters from the Latin alphabet, hyphens, and underscores. For now, non-Latin and accented characters aren't supported, though this may change this in the future. In your profile, however, you can use other languages and accented characters.
If members of your team have names with accented or non-Latin characters, we suggest displaying full names rather than usernames. Team Owners and Admins can change this preference by visiting the Settings & Permissions page, then expanding the Name Display section.
