PHP Code

function CleaningAString($string)
  {
      $string = strtolower($string);
      // Replace other special chars
      $specialCharacters = array(
     '#' => 'sharp',
     '$' => 'dollar',
     '%' => 'percent',
     '&' => 'and',
     '@' => 'at',
     '€' => 'euro',
     '+' => 'plus',
     '=' => 'equals to',
     '§' => 'paragraph',
      );
     while (list($character, $replacement) = each($specialCharacters))  {
          $string = str_replace($character, '-' . $replacement . '-', $string);
      }
      return $string;
  }

This code will replace the all special characters to string using following this php function.

I hope that it will be helpful.
