|You can add
[ "ç" ; "c" ] ;
[ "Ç" ; "C" ] ;
Great saving time function.

|Hi - the German character "ß" stands for "ss" (not "B").
So it should say [ "ß" ; "ss" ] ;
Awesome job though - very useful - thank you!

|This is great, but turning the German letter Esszet or double-S "ß" into a capital "B" is a mistake; the equivalent of ß is "ss", it has nothing to do, despite its appearance, with the letter B.

|Thanks for the feedback R. Miller and Doug Staubach.
I've corrected "ß" so that it replaces with "ss".
