update sapphire/javascript/UpdateURL.js like this:

Add function

function deLocalize( inStr ) {
        var outStr = inStr;
        outStr = outStr.replace(/[áÁ]/g, 'a');
        outStr = outStr.replace(/[éÉ]/g, 'e');
        outStr = outStr.replace(/[íÍ]/g, 'i');
        outStr = outStr.replace(/[ýÝ]/g, 'y');
        outStr = outStr.replace(/[óÓ]/g, 'o');
        outStr = outStr.replace(/[úÚ]/g, 'u');
        outStr = outStr.replace(/[ôô]/g, 'o');
        outStr = outStr.replace(/[ää]/g, 'a');
        outStr = outStr.replace(/[ůů]/g, 'u');
        outStr = outStr.replace(/[ěĚ]/g, 'e');
        outStr = outStr.replace(/[Å¡Å ]/g, 's');
        outStr = outStr.replace(/[čČ]/g, 'c');
        outStr = outStr.replace(/[řŘ]/g, 'r');
        outStr = outStr.replace(/[ťŤ]/g, 't');
        outStr = outStr.replace(/[žŽ]/g, 'z');
        outStr = outStr.replace(/[ľĽ]/g, 'l');
        outStr = outStr.replace(/[ĺĹ]/g, 'l');
        outStr = outStr.replace(/[ďĎ]/g, 'd');
        outStr = outStr.replace(/[ňŇ]/g, 'n');
        return outStr;

and replace

var newSuggestion = urlSegmentField.suggestNewValue( this.value.toLowerCase() );


var newSuggestion = urlSegmentField.suggestNewValue( deLocalize(this.value.toLowerCase()) );

Above chars are special for slovak or czech languages...
