I know that google can handle Non-Latin characters in URLs and for my research, I know that in many cases SEO experts advised being used for localized websites.

Unfortunately, these non-Latin URLs have some disadvantages like the way it might display in certain browsers or in certain text cases when the link is copied and pasted somewhere online.

The technical part to change the URLs it’s easy, but that is the best practice to inform search engines about this change for already indexed URLs and not lose authority?

Is it best practice to use 301 redirects for 2k posts?

  • There is always an SEO risk when changing URLs. In this case there might be an additional risk because your URLs are currently written in native characters. I'm not sure it would hurt the site, but you can't do it risk free. – Stephen Ostermiller Jun 20 at 14:36
