Migration from MT3 to WP: Foreign URL Characters & Redirection

  1. We have a blog which I am moving from Movable Type 3 to WordPress. I have done hundreds of these migrations, however this blog is different.

    In Movable Type 3, the blog URL is as follows:

    http://blog_name.com/articles/aaeccaacaaeeeaaaaaaaeecaiiii/

    After migrating the content to WordPress, WordPress actually displays the Chinese characters insead of the /aaeccaacaaeeeaaaaaaaeecaiiii as shown below:

    http://migrated_blog_name.com/articles/因出资瑕疵引发的公司诉讼-跨国公司在华公司诉/

    Does anybody have any ideas how I can either...

    1. Have WordPress use the /aaeccaacaaeeeaaaaaaaeecaiiii (automatically - so we don't have to manually modify a thousand posts)
    2. Somehow have the /aaeccaacaaeeeaaaaaaaeecaiiii translated into Chinese characters so WordPress can continue to use /因出资瑕疵引发的公司诉讼-跨国公司在华公司诉/
