Easily done :-)

FWIW, a while back I came across an interesting variation on typing the alphabet for use in translate(): type the keyboard layout instead, thus:

translate($string, 'QWERTYUIOPASDFGHJKLZXCVBNM', 'qwertyuiopasdfghjklzxcvbnm')

It's much easier to type (for a non-touch-typist like me, anyway) and that, to my mind, makes it less susceptible to the kind of slip you made in your code.

(Of course, the French will want "AZERTY..." instead.)
