in thread How to remove other language character from a string

That's because it wasn't formatted correctly due to missing code tags (which were presumably left out so that the input text would be shown properly). When I first ran moritz's code, I just got the original string, but when I substituted:

$str =~ s/[^\p{Latin}\s]//g;

for this:

$str =~ s/^\p{Latin}\s//g;

it worked.

EDIT: If you have lots of extra spaces in your output, you could run it through $str =~ s/ {2,}/ /g;, too. Something to keep in mind is that moritz's approach (as is) will remove punctuation.
