Error when Importing Glossary Terms

I used a template to import Glossary Terms in the Purview Sandbox. After I select the template to upload it I receive an error that the name cannot contain a special Character. Is there a workaround for this? We have items that do in fact contain special characters in their Name. Thank you for any assistance that you are able to provide.

    @Rutherford, Kristin As per my discussion with internal team, there is no workaround at this point. May be can’t we script-swipe all the special characters from the import template? The terms would still be recognizable.

    But if you have any additional feedback to the product improvement, feel free to log it in IDEAS forum here - https://feedback.azure.com/d365community/forum/82d7bddb-fb24-ec11-b6e6-000d3a4f07b8 and do share the feedback link so that I can pass it to the respective product owners to further review it.

    And also would appreciate if you could confirm from where did you get the terms from? and also please attach a sample template (remove any sensitive data) so that I can pass the same to the product team.

    Hope this info helps.
