A good example of create for non latin languages is Turkish.

There both upper case I character and lowercase ı character which makes other strtolower kind of functions useless.

$text = "Iğdır";

echo Transliterator::create("tr-Lower")->transliterate($text);

will return the correct result ığdır, not iğdır .
