Convert accents, Umlaute and diacritics into "plain english"

Hello fellow Optimizers,

I want my Robo to compare two sets of String “Name, Surname, Date of Birth” to check if the customer is valid. To do so, I try to make shure that things like german Umlaute (ä,ü,ö), French Accents and maybe some other diacritics don’t produce false negatives.

Is there any other way to clear the string of those characters and replace them with plain english characters other than make an awefull long list of .replace?

Thank you in advance!
