Confluence siteurl with german ä ü ö


Is there any way, that confluence will support german letters (äüö) in the url ?

For Example

Sitename  DE: Vertrag verlängern.
Sitename EN: Renew contract.

These are the two URLs generated by confluence :
German url :
English url :

Is there any way, to force the german url toängern ?

Not without a lot of coding - characters like that are not valid in uri's and have to be used with % escaping and Confluence only generates simple uris without encoding.
