I am building a Content By Search web part that read data from a custom list with one column "Title". I have updated the search schema to mark the title column as sortable and now I can choose the title to sort by however the search results is always sorted by ASCII like [0-9A-Za-z] so if I have the following items

  • Hossam
  • A
  • a

The search results will be

  • A
  • Hossam
  • a

So I need your support on what I can do to make my search results like below

  • A
  • a
  • Hossam

I have found the following link that is talking about the same issue with SharePoint 2010 FAST search but no hints about how to fix it on SharePoint 2013

I have ended up by maintaining another field with all upper case letters (Which was fine for my business), and used the new field for sorting the results.
