Drupal 7 – Pathauto and Transliteration

Pathauto is the most common module which i think almost all Drupal websites use it to format the path alias. Sometime we want to use the node title as part of the path alias but if we are working on multilingual Drupal website, this may lead to non english URL.

For every Story content type, i want the URL alias to be http://<drupal_root>/stories/<story_title&gt; so i set stories/[title-raw] in Pattern for all Story paths.
