This package is a more or less direct port of the java package unidecode which in turn is probably one of many ports of the Perl Package Text::Unidecode by Sean M. Burke.

The similarly named julia package Unidecode solves a different problem: Re-converting autocompleted Latex or Emoji back to the original UTF-8 string.
