Hey Ilen, 

 

It should be that Non-ASCII characters are supported. Source: https://adwords.googleblog.com/2011/07/non-ascii-characters-now-supported-in.html 

 

But, if for some reason it's still not working you do have the ability to convert said characters to ASCII characters. 

 

Let me know how it goes!

Hi Illen, 

 

I'm happy to hear things worked out but make sure that your URL shortner brings you to the same URL as your destination URL. I've also read articles though that have said that anything other than your actual URL is not allowed so please be careful.
