normalizeDiacritics('àáãâäéèêëíìîïóòõôöúùûüñçÀÁÃÂÄÉÈÊËÍÌÎÏÓÒÕÔÖÚÙÛÜÑÇ');
//=> "aaaaaeeeeiiiiooooouuuuncAAAAAEEEEIIIIOOOOOUUUUNC"

normalizeDiacritics('@_gt;<=-#!,.`\'"');
//=> "@_gt;<=-#!,.`'\"";

normalizeName

//=> "Wilson da Costa"

normalizeParagraph

Normalize a paragraph by normalizing its white-spaces, capitalizing first letter and adding a period at end.

normalizeParagraph(' once upon a time');
//=> "Once upon a time."

normalizeParagraph('hello world, my friend\r\n');
// => 'Hello world, my friend.'

normalizeText

normalizeText(' so there\'s  a  Way to NORMALIZE ');

normalizeText(['Olá\r\n', 'como está a   senhorita?']);
