A Soundex Custom function to find similar sounding content in your database. I made some adaptions to improve searches in german and italian language - works for english as well.

Soundex-Code, um nach ähnlich klingenden Wörtern zu suchen, deren Schreibweise nicht bekannt ist. "filip" findet z.B. "Philipp", "meier" findet "Meyer", "Maier" oder "Meier". Optimiert für Deutsch, geht aber auch für englischen Inhalt.
